    Vintage Cars Quilt Top

    Here is a picture of a quilt top I completed yesterday.
    I am making two car quilts. One with Model T fabric and this one done with fabrics from "Vintage Cars".
    Both quilts are different. The Model T quilt is for me. This one is for.....maybe I will sell it.

    The vintage car quilt does not have a pattern. I constructed it by hanging it up, looking, and walaaa, I will do this to it.

    Right now I am happy with the way it turned out. I have the backing fabric too. I will use the black fabric which is actually tires. the binding will be done with the red fabric. It is 70x75.

    For the actual quilting: I do have some line drawings of old cars for the larger blocks. Perhaps some feathers in the open light blue areas. The center is a panel, maybe some free motion squiggles to make the cars stand out. Any other suggestions are welcome.

    I am calling myself a "Topper". It seems the last couple of years that is all the farther I get on my quilts. Make a top and move on to the next top. I might have 8 of these now. I do the top, get the backing.....

    I am now headed to Joanns with my coupon for batting. Determined to complete this one.

    The other car quilt

    This is the Model T quilt top.
    It was a free pattern I printed off the internet. I would look it up but I have loaned the pattern out already.
    This was another quick and easy one to do. I am definitely keeping this one.

    The fabrics are Timeless Treasures. If you notice the model T fabric is directional so I made the cars fan out from the center. The pinwheels were suppose to be a color with white. I did not want too much white in this quilt because of the way it was going to be used.

    There is enough of the model T fabric for the backing. Again, another top waiting for me.

    We have 3 Model T's. I will use this one in the car to stay warm. Often we travel to picnics and there is not room for chairs so a quilt on the ground will have to do.

    A question for you Pjaco, what is the motivation to actually finish the quilt so I am no longer a "topper"?

    GM C6441 Black, Model T Cars by Timeless Treasures Fabrics<-- model T fabric or Pacific Fabrics has it, as does EBay
    t
    The first quilts fabrics are called "Vintage Cars". This fabric came out last year.

    I know have the Model T quilt sandwiched, so I may get started on quilting today.

    I made these because we have cars.
    I drive a "23 Model T, Roadster, Stock. I have won a couple of awards with her.
    DH drives a 27 Touring, stock.
    We share the 26 Tudor, stock with original upholstery and paint.
    It has windows all the way around so we can get our fix in the winter.

    Oh no OHNO!! My sewing machine is broke.
    For the model T quilt I wanted to put my model T RW designs in the squares for quilting.

    I loaded the designs, hooped the quilt and the embroidery section is all off kilter.
    I really hope this is not an expensive fix.

    I dropped everything on the floor, walked out of the room and shut the door.
    A few days later I went back in to restart the machine. I was double checking to see if it was really broke or I was having a bad day.

    the answer to that is "Both".

    This is an Ebay link.
    I am sharing it because it is the Timeless Treasures Model T fabric I used in one of the quilts.
    I have my share of this fabric, so it is time to share.
