In the Works – A Car Mat

Little Jimmy is officially into toys — well, objects in general.  It is only some time before he figures out toy cars.  What a perfect way to play with them on a quilt with a town and roads.  About a month ago, I basted this panel with some Richard Scarry fabric for the backing.  Inspired by Angela Walters new book (Free-motion Quilting with Angela Walters), I wanted to incorporate many designs into this quilt.  I started with pebbling the roads.  Oh my!  It looks great, but took forever!  This past weekend, I finished pebbling all of the roads.  In total, I think that it took me over 5 hours just to do the roads.  I still have more to quilt, but I may be reconsidering the density of my other quilt areas.

I was too busy with pebbling that I didn’t make any more progress on my pickle dish or underground railroad quilts.  Next week….
