Well, thanks to the help of the amazing ladies of the Beejeebers Bee, each of them making one of those awesome semi's around the border of the quilt, this is ready to Roll On Out in time for Father's Day!! Yippee Skippee!!! Convoy is a special quilt for my dad designed to fit in the cab of his truck. He started driving trucks again last year (after a 20ish year hiatus while we kids grew up) and just loves being on the road!!
I struggled for a while trying to decide on how to quilt this without taking away from all of the awesome semis. In the end I decided to go for a basic straight all over stipple that I think tied it together without distracting to much. Most of the quilt is done on a larger scale in white but I wanted the semi in the middle to really pop. I designed that particular block to look just like my Dad's Semi. Down to the logo on the door :) So I quilted it with blue thread instead and did a slightly smaller scale of quilting. I really like the way it turned out :)
I found this super fun backing fabric in my stash. It really ties in well with all of the fun colors from the front and just reminds me of my dad because it is a little on the wild side!! (His nick name is Wild Man because of all of the crazy shorts he wears that my mom makes him out of the wildest fabric she can find, including flames :)
So now I just need to wrap it up for Sunday :) I can't wait to see his face. I will be sure to take lots of pictures :) Thanks again Beejeeber's Ladies!!! You all rock!!!
