    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.

    I love what you did with the borders & sashing to break the monotony. I made one for my granddaughter & was not so creative & it was very boring to look at. Her t-shirts so she loved it but I was disappointed in the overall look. Wish I had seen yours first!! Great job!!

    Thanks everyone for your kind words. He got a lump in his throat when he saw the label. In return, he painted a picture of what used to be my DH's stock car. That car is now being driven by a 16 yr old girl that my DH is coaching. They have done so well together that she finished 3rd in points this season. I think I got the better deal as I can't even draw stick figures.
