Rambling Roads

It's been a while since I got a chance to sit down at the sewing machine, but today I got the time to sew most of this top together. I've been collecting transportation themed fabrics for this little boy quilt for a few weeks. I made the "road" sashing by cutting wide strips of grey and yellow and piecing them together, then slicing down the strips to make the narrow alternating center stripe, and sandwiching that in more grey.

The reverse applique letters spell out his name. The quilt will measure 60" square when finished. I'm stuck, for the moment, until I can run to town for more grey fabric to finish the sashing.

I hope it's cooler wherever you are than I am here!
