Looking back of what I have (and haven't) posted, I realised that this quilt slipped through the cracks...
It was made to go on his big boy bed to not so much replace the Spot quilt as keep it company apparently. I thought he had grown out of Spot (which he had, just not the quilt, which was a great compliment). So Spot is now a bit small for his bed but perfect for snuggles on the sofa, while this emergency vehicle quilt is more his speed on his bed, being a king single bed topper.
The fabrics are all from the same range, bought with the central panel as a fat quarter pack. I always feel I am cheating slightly by using all fabrics from the same range - it somehow doesn't test my creativity like choosing random fabrics does. The current medallion quilt project is a prime example of this. Anyway, in this case the challenge was to use the fabulous panel to best effect. To do so I adapted a Cluck, Cluck, Sew design and instead of making the whole quilt out of it, I made a border using all the lovely fabrics from the pack.
It is quilted practically for quite heavy use in straight lines in a variegated thread in primary colours which works beautifully with the prints. I also practiced my free motion skills by outlining each of those little vehicles on the panel. It was a labor of love, trust me. :) The binding is scrappy blues from the range as well.
I don't think he will be growing out of this one *quite* as quickly as the Spot, at least I hope not!
