Beep Beep Vroom Vroom

In January I joined the Charlotte chapter of the Modern Quilter's Guild.  Their charity project for 2020 is quilts for the kids who get meals from Friendship Trays. Friendship Trays delivers food to elderly or infirm individuals who can't obtain or prepare their own meals (similar to meals on wheels but without an age limit).  Friendship Trays includes delivery to families and it is estimated that at any given time, about 150 children ages 2-5 in the Charlotte metro are among the recipients.


Of course kids' quilts are my favorite thing to make!  I have lots of I Spy squares and for this one, I went with a theme.  I picked out 48 I Spy squares with any kid of car/truck/vehicle on them and sewed them together randomly as a leader and ender project.

With trucks, styled by Fire Monkey
I really wanted a center with some truck noises.  I used my Accuquilt alphabet die for the letters.  Beep Beep is in Kona Storm and Vroom Vroom is in Kona Lagoon. The background and binding are Kona Tan. 


The back is a fun Hot Wheels print that my mom gave me years ago.  It's perfect for this quilt! This is finish 17 for the year as I attempt to complete 52 projects in 2020.
