Quilting in the Playground

Several of you have asked for more posts showing finished customer quilts, so I am trying to remember to snap some pics before the quilts go to their permanent homes. Sometimes I’m in such a hurry that I just pack up the quilt and move on to the next one without ever taking a photo. Hopefully I’ll get better.

The one I’m showing you today is an adorable  twin size quilt for a little boy. I think he’s going to love it, especially with all those dirt moving trucks traveling all over his quilt.

Sandbox Quilt

My customer was up against a deadline, so she asked for an easy meander for the quilting design. I had this one loaded, quilted, and unloaded in just a few hours. Even though I love to create a custom design for a quilt, sometimes these ‘fast and dirty’ quilt jobs are just what the doctor ordered. There’s something so satisfying about unloading and trimming up a finished quilt.

I really like the truck fabric she used in her borders. I can just imagine those trucks driving along the meandering ‘road’ that is stitched all over!

Many thanks to Connie for allowing me to quilt this top for her. I hope her grandson loves it!

  1. What a smooth even meander on your stippling! Wish I could do the same. I usually end up in a corner and freak out on where to go next.

    Oh so very fun! You can just see a little boy driving his cars and Tonka Trucks all over it while he plays on the bed.

  3. Such cute fabric! The yellow checkerboard is very effective, too. A nice, simple meander/stipple gives such good texture after washing 🙂

    Adorable! I laughed at your choice of words … fast and dirty … for dirt trucks. Pun intended? 😉

  5. So sweet. I know a little 2 year old who would adore this quilt!
