Grayson is one of our "city slicker" grandsons. That means he isn't into farm equipment, but he IS into garbage trucks and construction equipment. That's what he sees in his world. His parents painted a neighborhood along the bottom edge of one of his bedroom walls so he could drive along and pick up garbage. Another wall has the garbage dump and the big equipment. Sooooo, he needed a new blanket. Nana to the rescue......
The center is a "cheater" panel. For you non quilty people that means it is all one fabric. No piecing to it.
I used three different quilting patterns....meandering, loops, and a stencil on the white.
I've been wanting to use a stencil for a while, and I thought this was the perfect pattern for the white.
The back is pieced out of the leftovers from the front. The symmetrical me would have liked the top pieces to meet up, but the frugal me just couldn't waste that much fabric! Now, if it were for a fancier quilt the symmetrical me may have won. :)
As always, I hope Grayson loves it and uses it for many years! Do you think it will look good in a dorm room? :)
