Baby Quilt in the Blogger's Quilt Festival :*)


I couldn't resist putting this cute little quilt into the Baby Quilt category of the Blogger's Quilt Festival!


The quilt is lying in the grass, but no sun so it looks like a black background - go figure!
It was made for this little baby grandson - doesn't he look like he needs a cute quilt with fun vehicles on it?



The fabrics for this quilt are from the Happy Town line by Jacquelynne Steves.  They were absolutely perfect for this project!


The pattern I used was Rescue Squad by Erin Wilcoxon in the Sept/Oct '09 issue of Quiltmaker.  I paper-pieced three of each of all three of the different vehicles....


......but then I decided one of these little ambulances had to go to make room for this cute little helicopter that I put in the top left corner of the quilt :*)

Pattern design by Quiet Play and sold on Craftsy HERE
The quilting was done with this wonderful set of Aurifil threads - all the colors I needed were right there!


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...


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





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!




Now, be sure to go and check out all the other great quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!!!!

And if you feel so inclined, I sure would appreciate your vote for Hudson's Heroes HERE!



Hugs & Blessings!
