Keira's Cars Quilt

It is all finished!!! And almost three weeks early! Keira is a typical little sister and loves to do everything her big sister does and wants what her big sister has, so as soon as I finished making Avalyn's Cars Quilt, I started on one for Keira. She got a glimpse of it a couple of days ago (due to my carelessness) and jumped around and squealed with delight. (She was really really disappointed when it was not on her bed that evening.)

The whole quilt. (I still haven't figured out a god way to take a picture of such a large quilt.)

One of the corners where you can see some of one of the squares, the small black border, the crazy red Lightning McQueen border, and the black binding.

Each of these pictures is made up of for squares and black sashing.

Another look at the border.

The back of Keira's quilt. Unfortunately, I felt the need to take these pictures at the worst possible time during the day, thus the glare on the camera and the really faded look. It is true solid black with Keira's name in bright Kona Cotton. The black binding just blends in (I was a little disappointed with this, but it really works very well for the front, so I just dealt with it here on the back.)

I LOVE the way her name came out! I think I am getting better with my improvisationally pieced lettering.

And the token folded quilt picture.

I think I forgot to mention that this is a large twin size quilt. It has a pretty long drape, but I love the way it came out and I know one little girl that is going to love it more than I do!

  1. Love this quilt! I bought a Cars fabric myself (the one in your border) a few months ago to make something for my grandson (who also loves cars), but have not deceided what to do with it yet. I have not seen that many different Cars fabric here though!
    What a great idea to sew the name into the backing!
