This was a quilt I made for my cousin’s little boy Jack. I wasn’t sure what he’d like so I decided to go with trains and cars and road motif. The print patterns were all coordinating, and then I picked out solids and added in the checks for some interest. I was really particular about the checks and you’d be surprised how hard it was to find just some basic black white check! Most of the ones had variation or wavy, but I finally found some at JoAnn’s.
The back is Minkee, my go-to for baby quilts. I used my embroidery machine to make a quilt label for this one as well. That’s definitely my new thing. I love how I can make them personalized and the “kid” font on my machine is perfect for it.
Binding was a basic black since it was already a pretty busy quilt and offered a nice contrast. I did an all over loopy pattern since, again, already pretty busy. I used a gray thread which blended nicely with the the different colors and prints.
And that’s about it.
