baby quilt

I am having trouble getting my pictures in
the right order. Arrrgggggg...and you might
have to turn your head again. I need to take
all of my pictures vertically or learn how to
turn the pictures when I post them.















This is the back. It has roads printed on it and
the same cars and trucks from the border print.




















I made a baby quilt out of a kit with cars & trucks.


I think it was called Take 5. It was quick, the kind
I like for baby quilts.

I love to use stripes for the binding. This one didn't
have enough fabric in the kit to cut on the diagonal,
but I still like the look of stripes running this way too.
I quilted it with meandering stitches.

The quilts look just as darling sideways as they do up and down. Great work!

Very cute Patty, love the polka dots and stripes. I don't usually put stripes in my borders, but it looks great on the binding.

Hi Patty....If you haven't got it already....try downloading Picasa 3 and use that to edit your pics...you can turn them around so they face the right way and upload them straight to blogger if you wish. It's a free download from Google. If you need further help with it, let me know and I'll see if I can help! As for putting your pics in a post in the right order, you need to put the one you want at the top in last...so in other words, upload them in reverse order...the other way is to copy and paste them once they're all on the blog post, before you publish that is. Congratulations on the win from The Creative Thimble and love the car and truck quilt. Hugs Naomi
