Finish It Up Friday ~ My Jeep UFO

I finished my little Jeep UFO!

I used Superior Thread’s Mono-poly thread on the top. It was the first time I’ve used this in Friday and I was pleased at how well it behaved.

Here’s my little buddy, Pierre. I miss him.

I kind of wish I had made this Jeep the same color as my Oscar, but honestly, this color makes for a better composition.

I bought this fabric on one of my trips to Phoenix. It was perfect for the back!

My mitered borders turned out okay and I think it really does look like a frame.

I’m really pleased with how this turned out. Losing the trailer was definitely the right thing to do.

And here it is in its new home, just above my collection of toy Jeeps in the sewing room.

Have a great weekend!

    You might be the only person I ever met who liked Jeeps more than my DH did! That’s a lovely piece, and so tranquil.

    Your Jeep wall hanging is perfect! You always come up with the neatest ideas. Wish I had your creativity. One question though, how do you keep those darling little boys out of your toy Jeep collection? Lol

  6. Lisa says:

    This is just so cute. I love this little quilt and who knew you had a collection of jeeps in the sewing room. Very cool.

  7. Hi Katy, you really like Jeeps! That’s a great little quilt for your collection. That’s also a great way to remember Pierre. Thanks so much for linking up to TGIFF. Have a great weekend.

    Your jeep piece is certainly interesting and what a surprise to see that you have a toy jeep collection.

  10. Liz says:

    Love it! Goes great with your collection.

    I think it looks great and it looks like your wrist is doing better. Been there and it is enormously frustrating to be side lined. I did love the trailer and someday will do a wall hanging with one of those….maybe not too far in the future!!

    That is so nice! You did good! Hugs,

  13. Loris Mills says:

    Your little jeep wall hanging turned out awesome! I love the colors and especially the quilting in the sky. Everything in it has lots of significance which makes it so special. Congrats on a wonderful finish.

  15. Elizabeth says:

    Love the personal touches you added. And I’m definitely going to steal your idea for a “frame”.

  16. Jayne says:

    That is the cutest!! Love the entire piece and all the detail is candy for the eyes!

    What a delightful little quilt. Even though I am a bird lover, I’m going to copy your jeep and dog and make these two for my grandson, putting his puppy in the jeep. I’ve been working on a collage of pictures for his bedroom wall and this will be one. Katy, you’re always full of great ideas and wonderful work. Thank you!

  18. It turned out great! That’s the perfect spot for the quilt too!

  19. Margie says:
