Blogger Quilt Festival Spring 2013 - Disney Cars & Rolling Tires quilt

I made this quilt for my 4year old nephew who loves Lightning McQueen. The center of the quilt is a printed panel and I added couple of borders to it. I really enjoyed free motion quilting on my domes sewing machine - Singer Stylist 9960. The "Rolling Tires" FMQ on the red border and flames quilting on the outer most border. I just highlighted the center panel by quilting around the motif/car.

  1. I really do love this one - though my own nephew is probably a big influence here... :-)

    It's so nice to see it again!! I'm so impressed with your free-motion...

    1. Thank you! It was really fun to quilt this one. I really like how it turned out.

  2. This is amazing! It looks just like a painted cartoon strip picture. I'm awed that you can do that with fabric!

  3. I'm still just amazed by your FMQ and that binding is inspired!!! Love it:-)

    1. Thank you!
      This is my favorite one so far with the panel quilts.
      This is the first time I tired a big print for the binding and it turned out really good.

  4. It looks fantastic, Malini, I love the rolling tires, it so matches the car panel! :) It looks like fun to do.
