Hello sweet friends! There's a fabulous Friday finish to share with you today. This quilt is my own design(sorta). Since it's a lap quilt it was quick and easy. A few weeks ago while sharing a sneak peek of the quilt I asked my creative followers to help with a name . There were so many great suggestions. Thank you so much for your advice. Taking all the suggestions and rolling them into one sweet and simple name.
The truck block is huge measuring 24 x 24. I'd like to take total credit for the simple design, but it's an old pattern made new by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star quilt company. While doing a search for a simple quilt pattern for my applique trucks and trees I saw a picture of the her quilt block. To be honest I've not watched the video. When saw a picture of her block I drew it in EQ7, then added my own special touch of applique.
The video is Sticks and Stones. The jelly roll and most of the other fabrics used in this quilt were custom cut from our local quilt shop "Coffee Cup Quilting"
The 24" truck block is 4 of the Sticks and Stones blocks sewn together to make one large block. Then the applique was added.
The scrap end pieces of the jelly roll were used to design the background for Christmas tree section in the middle and the thin inner border.
Whenever possible I like to add fabric from the vintage stash. The vintage brown gingham (not cotton) added a special cozy feel.
And to keep the cozy feel, a simple custom quilting without quilting it to death.
