I finished quilting this car quilt. The embroidered blocks were a set of partially done blocks that I picked up at an estate sale. I finished the embroidery and put them together into a baby quilt/wall hanging size quilt.
When I was trying to figure out what to quilt in the border, I went to a favorite blog for quilting designs, The Inbox Jaunt. Lori Kennedy has some amazing quilting designs with directions for how to make them by free motion quilting. I found this race car design and when I read her step by step instructions it look pretty easy. Below is my first try at it on my practice scrap.
It seemed easy and I made them all around the border of the quilt. They aren't perfect, but I like them anyway. Here are a couple close ups of the cars as quilted in the border. They aren't real visible because of the plaid fabric, but maybe you can see how they turned out. No two of them are exactly the same.
I definitely will continue to use Lori's ideas - they are amazing!
