A Very Busy Sunday

This project was very daunting to me. I have had it for a while and have been nervous every step along the way. It had a lot of first for me, my first applique, the first time working with corduroy and the first time figure out my own size measurements for the quilt based off the toddler's bed. It is a custom order and the design was totally her idea. Although the quilt itself looks simple it was really time consuming. One of the hardest parts for me was to figure out how to center the truck applique when I sandwiched it all together. It was very nervewracking and very time consuming. I just didn't want to mess up. I have a lot of time and money invested in this and I would hate to mess it up.

But I think it turned out awesome and all that is left is to put on the blue corduroy binding. So hopefully I will have the entire order finished any shipped off to its new home this week!! That will be very satisfying.


  1. I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog! I quickly jumped over here and I love your work.

    I can't wait to see how the quilt turns out. I have a thing for little boy quilts...:0)

  2. Congrats on being almost done! The truck applique is really cute.

  3. I love it! It's always so rewarding to finish a quilt full of new techniques.
