Friday Night Sew In Report

I got a good start on the vehicle quilt for my grandson last night.  Figured out the layout and sewed the block strips together.

Can you spot my mistake?  Probably not because the picture is too small.  I sewed this block in upside down.

But I caught it before I sewed on the long sashing so I fixed it….

Right side up now.  I finished sewing the long sashing strips this morning.  I was going to put the panel on the top and bottom, but now I’m second guessing myself, due to DH’s comment that “there is a lot going on” when he looked at the blocks. 
Does anyone have any thoughts?  Here’s another pic.  I would put a strip of 5 to 6 inches of blue on the sides of the vehicle blocks, then a panel strip at the top and bottom of the quilt.  It makes it a good size for a twin bed quilt and I like it, but I’d love your opinion.

  2. It has a lot going on in a really terrific way. It's great! It's full of interest and finds, and the blue sashing provides the touch of "rest" needed. Kids love lots going on.

  6. I would only put the panel on the top, then a solid on the bottom to give your eyes somewhere to rest. It really is cute!

  7. It looks amazing!
    I like the idea of the border top and bottom. The sashing really sets it off.
    Well done!!

  8. Wow, this is turning out so great! I like a panel top and bottom too. Didn't you know those were trick pilots and they were flying up-side-down? My uncle did that kind of flying, lazy eights and barrel rolls. Did you ever find that vehicle your grandson loves to ride?

  10. I think there is a lot going on, but that's what kids like, so I would add the panel strips top and bottom.
