I need to make a baby quilt with a corvette theme for a good friend of my son. I've never seen a pattern and have no good ideas! Any help or inspiration would be appreciated.
I made a thunderbird quilt for my DH. It was applique. He went online and found pictures of a 1965 and 2002 thunderbird and I cut them out and appliqued them on white kona cotton. I used route 66 fabric for the backing. It came out real nice and he loves it. Just a thought.
Thank you, you've both been helpful. I have an old pieced pattern called "start your engines" that I think I'd like to adapt. I tried to find it on the Internet to show you, but I guess it's too old. The corvette fabric looks good, I'll make that the border or back. I want to show my son some options and start on the quilt in January.
here is a cute one that i saw on pinterest.
and one more
It looks like a good way to use large scale prints, thanks!
This is the pattern I'm hoping to use:
Try googling corvette coloring pages, this is a classic if you can picture it in the red and white version, with the white wall tires
" Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.. "
That's a great idea!
I'm hoping to avoid applique because I don't think it will stand up to the frequent washing of a baby quilt, but I haven't completely ruled it out.
