Throwback Thursday

Good Morning! Since I am still quilting on that QOV that I showed you yesterday, I thought I would pull out an oldie once again. My son has always loved cars and graduated in 2010 from UTI with a degree in Automotive Technology. He owns a 1977 Trans Am that he calls Betty. So when he graduated, I made this quilt for him.

It was quite the undertaking, but he loved it! So it was all worth it.

Have a great day!

    What a cool quilt– I know some other Trans Am lovers that would be jealous. Was that done with applique? How did you to the red outline – is it stitching? Love this!
