Eli’s Tractor Quilt

Posted Friday, August 30th, 2013 in Accuquilt Go cutter, Quilting, baby quilt | Tags: , , ,

Our grandson loves tractors. When he visits us, he likes to ride on the old pedal tractor that Grandpa played with as a child, and ride with daddy on the John Deere lawn mower.When I saw how much he loves tractors, I had to make him a tractor quilt.

I had several John Deere fat quarters that were a Christmas gift from Jeff and Christina several years ago. I also had a tractor panel that I bought to go with the FQs. I cut the FQs into six inch tumbler blocks with my Accuquilt Go cutter and joined them to make borders around the panel. I quilted it with a meandering design.


When I showed the quilt to Eli, he pointed to it and said, “Tractor!”. We put the quilt on the floor and he danced on it and then rolled on it as he wrapped it around himself. Next he stood up and dragged it behind him as he went to the bedroom. I think he likes it! LOL

I’m sorry for the poor photography but he was on the move!

He sure knows how to show appreciation for a quilt.
