Blogger's Quilt Festival--The Roadwork Quilt (Bed Quilt Category)

AmysCreativeSide

This is my second entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side. You can find my first entry here.

This is my Roadwork Quilt. I made this for my little guy's bed. I created the whole quilt from just a few simple blocks. I then used heat transfer vinyl to apply the white striping and road signs. I love how it turned out, and it was so perfect for him considering his love of cars. He was so excited about it when it was on my design wall and kept asking me to finish is "roads". Now, a couple months after being finished, it is often on the floor rather than his bed, but at least he knows I made it just for him.

  4. It matters not where the quilt is used, just that it's loved by someone. Your boy is very fortunate to have this great quilt!

  5. This is fantastic!! I wanted to do something like this for my nephew but got way too busy... You may have kick-started another project that I don't have time for. :-)
