DONE with four days to spare

My posts have been pretty quiet on the quilting front but I haven’t been just sitting around watching trains on YouTube, ya know. 

Gotta love that little foot propped up on the desk :) .

In fact, I’ve been busy since there is a special little boy who’s going to be two years old on Saturday and is crazy about the movie Cars. 

So what does a quilting Grandma get said young ‘un for his birthday?  A Cars quilt of course,complete with appliquéd roads to drive those cars on!

IMG_3418 Please ignore the wrinkles.  It was folded up to take along today and show a friend I was having lunch with.  Right now it’s in the dryer getting all softened up so that special two year old can cuddle up in it.


We saw this saying on a plaque while we were on vacation.  I knew as soon as I saw it that it was going on the back of this quilt!


And yes, his birthday isn’t until Saturday, but I’m not spoiling the surprise.  Mom & Dad have already seen it and he’s still too little to look at my blog, so I’m safe.



  1. What a special quilt! I'm sure the birthday boy is going to absolutely love it!

  2. 2 year old will love the quilt that Grandma made. And how cute is that picture of him on grandpa's lap looking at the computer!

    I love the quilt!

  3. How cool. He will love that! And I love the feet propped up... Making memories!

    until next time... nel

  4. Such a very special quilt! His eyes are going to pop when he sees it.
