Racing to the Finish Line!

I'm going to be visiting my grandchildren in North Carolina next week, and I'm so excited to be taking the littlest grandson his new "play" quilt!

Hudson's Heroes is a finish!!!

The quilt is lying in the grass, but no sun so it looks like a black background - go figure!
For the quilting on this one, I broke out these wonderful Auril colored threads set that I won from Madame Samm during her Books About Women blog hop...

The darker red was just the right color for working inside the vehicles, while the lighter, more orangey red was perfect for outlining the vehicles in the outer border...

Look at all these gorgeous colors!!!!

I also used the yellow to outline the vehicles, after doing a little red SID inside for stability....

Don't look too close at the stitching - I didn't plan this one to be perfect LOL!!!

I used that really fun red/yellow/lime dot for the binding, which turned out really cute I think!

Stitched down by machine of course - much sturdier for a child (and quicker for me!)

Of course, one of my favorite parts of this quilt is the backing - the Happy Town panel that gives him a place to play with his own little cars!

I hope Hudson loves his little quilt as much as I do!

Linking this finish up with Patchwork Times =^..^=

Hugs & Blessings!
