Rolling on Out!!!

The next truck has rolled off the assembly line.  Lindsay from For the Love of Cotton made this awesome semi!!!  She wrote to find out some specifics about my dad and when I told her he used to drive trucks in Canada when I was very little she opted for a Canadian flag on the box.  So awesome!!!


And I drafted up a little drawing of what I envision this little quilt to look like when it is all done.  I did forget to add the road into my drawing though.  (It will go under the wheels).  The big truck in the middle is my rough estimate of what my Dads truck looks like.


He actually stopped by this weekend so when he wasn't looking I ran out and snapped a shot.


Now I just need to figure out how I would to about putting it together.  I think I am going to try and turn it into a paper pieced pattern.  It needs a bit more work but it is coming along :)

Oh, and because I have had a few people ask, here are the dimensions for the semi I made.  It is 12 x 20 finished.  And the side goes over how you can slightly change it to avoid the Y seams.
  
And speaking of rolling on out, I better roll away from this computer and get some kids off to school.  Have a fabulous Wednesday!!!
Pin It!
