I made this quilt to try one of the dies in my Accuquilt Go 9" Qube. It was easy and fast to do. I would like to try some of the more complicated blocks available but I'm trying to not start too many projects. (I will admit a Plus quilt is coming sometime soon though.) I used red thread top and bottom (So Fine, don't have the number with me right now) and Yarn Tangle design (from Apricot Moon.)
I wanted to use up some of the left over fabrics on the back but the truth of the matter is I had a hunk of the red print fabric and then dribs and dabs of the rest. I purchased some orange fabric that was the same color as one of the cars. So I made the back... Hum, as I look at the picture I realize I probably could have done a little better job at centering the quilt on the fabric. You should be able to enlarge the picture to see that there are little dinosaurs driving "egg" cars. I tend to make either gender neutral or little boy quilts for the NICU. Our contact mentioned there are usually more boys in the NICU than girls. So I focus more on the boy quilts. Although I know plenty of little girls who would love this quilt with the dinos!
That's it for today. I'm linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday, Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop, and Finished or Not Friday. Take a look at what's happening all over the internet, well at least some of the quilter's version of what's happening all over the internet.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
