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!!!
EDIT - - Several of you have requested dimensions for making this quilt. While I don't haev all of the dimensions for each of the trucks as my Bee Mates made up their own, this post has the basic small truck block dimensions that we used for most of the trucks, and this post has the basic large truck paper piecing pattern I drafted for the large semi in the middle. Hope that helps ;)
