Cars and Trucks and Things That Go quilt

This quilt was inspired by a photo I saw on Flickr, which led to me this website. The animal prints are from anCars and Trucks and Things That Go quilt backing Ikea quilt, which I cut apart and used the remainder as the backing. I first tried piecing it together with a lot of patterns, but decided that bright solid colors helped emphasize the animals. Because each of the animal blocks are different sizes, I decided to alter the size of each color frame so that I would end up with each finished block the same size – this made the quilt much easier to piece together. I thought I’d give the quilt as a gift along with a copy of one of my favorite children’s books, Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things That Go. First, I’ll have to wait for my girls’ attachment to the quilt to wane . . .
