A local lady asked me to use her grandmotherâ€™s embroidered linen and my usual style to create two quilts.
This one is for a baby. Her grandmother had created 7 nursery rhyme pieces that seemed perfect for a baby.
Since the baby is named Ford, we discussed adding trucks to the quilt.
Baby Fordâ€™s parents are journalists so I used a text print for the trucks and the sashing.
The quilt is backed with this Dr. Seuss print, quilted with concentric squares and bound with rainbow stripes.
I call this quilt Newspaper Trucks and measures approximately 45â€ x 50â€.
