Elliot's Racing Car Quilt

My sister embroidered these blocks and made this quilt for her boyfriend, Elliot. Elliot is 3 years old and just got a race car bed. That boy is in love with cars.

And the back

Threads were Glide Hawaiian Blue and White for the top and Bottom Line medium blue for the bobbin

Elliot will be dreaming of cars....but, he probably already does. I don't know...will he be a mechanic, a race car driver, own a car dealership?  or change his mind and become a chef or something.

Primitive Christmas

This was another collaborative effort between my sis and I.  i embroidered the blocks...she saw them and wanted them...so i gave them to her and she put together the quilt top...and i quilted it for her. it will hang in the 'Christmas room' at the beast.

All the blocks, except the house, have a piece of burlap in them.

Garage Graffiti .... half installed

I had a truck load of graffiti boards, so it was time to go out to the Duck and install. i brought my son with me so he could advise on covering up the window that was there....i didn't want to break it. His advice was to just take it out and board up the space...so that is what we (he) did.

I had 10 pieces finished, so i have the bottom half installed.

first half.jpg

I was trying to cut as few pieces as possible, but i used 1/2 inch plywood and that is heavy. so, i had to recut some larger pieces into smaller pieces. in hindsight....which is always good, right?....i just should have cut it into the blocks of the quilt. oh, well, it still worked.

A few close ups

I don't know why i don't have more red pics, i guess i didn't think they were that interesting. 

close 5.jpg

close 6.jpg

You know i have to put some words in there...no rhyme or reason...just using up pieces.

words yellow.jpg

This one might be my favorite.

It will probably take a couple weeks to finish the pieces for the other half. but i'm working on it.

Oh, and just like in quilting....you have to start a new project before you are finished with the last one....so, i started the lego chimney in the living room.
