In the Spring a Quilter's Fancy Turns to Quilt Cars!

I have no idea who created the first quilt car, but I think they are so much fun.

How many of us have enough sample blocks to cover a car with in our boxes under the bed?

I think most of these are done by quilt guilds, shops or clubs.

Quilters soon run out of beds to cover, walls to hang quilts on and turn their efforts to anything else they can imagine.

It would be so much fun to drive one of these and watch peoples reactions!

If your community has a parade this would be the greatest thing to drive in the parade.

Even trucks are fair game when it comes to being covered with quilt blocks.

If you would like to see even more quilt cars go to:

Certainly this car would be the Star of The Parade!
