Finish It Up Friday ~ The Jeep Quilt

I finished the quilt for Oscar. As you can see, the weather hasn’t cooperated for photos, so these will have to do.

I used my 6 inch tumbler die from Accuquilt . I didn’t want to cut the fabric into small pieces and this die was perfectly sized.

I used a pantograph from Urban Elementz called Malachite for the quilting. It reminds me of a topographical map.

I kept trying to pick threads off this blue print, then realized it was trails on the map. Silly me!

I love the backing fabric. I had to piece the back and I got it as close to centered as possible.

I think the center looks like a reflection.

This bench at the park looks very low, in fact, the snow is quite deep!

I’ve been enjoying using this quilt inside, but eventually it will stay in the Jeep.

BTW, if you click here, you can get free shipping on any order over $25 from Accuquilt.

Have a great day!

    Hi Katy,
    Okay, I’m weird but my favorite part of your pictures is all the footsteps in the snow. I can just see you fussing around, moving the quilt to the perfect position . . . stepping back and then repositioning. Did that happen??! Okay, now to the quilt itself. I love it and feel it is very worthy of Oscar. The backing – the topographical fabric (!!!!) that is fabulous. Enjoy! I can hardly wait to see your first picnic on it. Soon all this snow will be gone – someone said 60 days until Spring . . . if only. ~smile~ Roseanne

  19. I love all the interesting fabric you’ve used and the lovely quilting. The picture with the jeep and snow is icing on the cake.

  20. That’s a great quilt. Very cool fabrics. Maybe the lighting wasn’t great for photos, but that snow is awesome!

  21. Andra Gayle says:

  22. The quilting was the perfect choice. This will be a great quilt for the Jeep.

  23. Zenia Rene says:

    Love it! The backing is perfection and Malachite is the icing on the cake! Let me know when Studio Dies go on sale. I’ve a couple on my wishlist. oxoxo

    A Jeep quilt should be photographed out in the snow — it goes perfectly with the rugged nature of the vehicle and the fabrics! Love that panto for this — I did a similar pattern on a golf themed quilt for the same reason. Could just see this one rolled up in the back of the Jeep and pulled out to sit on watching the sun set on an off road journey. All around great quilt!
