You might remember my first post about a big stack of lovingly embroidered John Deere tractor blocks. To be honest, I was really nervous working on this project. My sister-in-law had put so many hours into making these blocks for her grandson (followed up by surgery on her hand...really!), I was so afraid of screwing this up.
I wanted to add a little more substance to the blocks so I decided to line each block with white cotton. Some on-line shopping yielded a selection of John Deere themed fabrics to frame each tractor and add a border.
After consulting with my SIL, we decided to go all the way with the theme and I used a John Deere fleece for the backing.
I had some fabric and fleece remaining so I made a pillow to match.
The quilt is twin size, heavy and very, very soft! These were shipped off to Michigan last week, before the Christmas rush.
My sister-in-law was thrilled! Phew! What a relief! I look forward to seeing her grandson wrapped up in this big, soft quilt.
Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday linky party!
