I made this quilt for a friend from his older T-shirts.The green, white and checkered fabric represent the end of the race. Little sprint cars were embroidered into the sashing blocks to break up the whiteness of it. I used a varigated orange red yellow thread to quilt flames all over on my home machine. It is a king sized quilt. The label was designed using SewWhatPro and the flag design from emlibrary. There was over 17 hours of fmq in this big one.

You should get a lifetime of front row seats at the speedway for giving him this extraordinary quilt. The entire quilt is a work of art, but the label just may be my favorite part of it.

This is beautiful. My husband is a sprint car fan, and we never miss the Knoxville Nationals. I will have to keep this idea in mind. Beautiful work.
