Quilt Cars For Quilt Show Season!


How many times do a group of ladies make a visit to a quilt show in a vehicle like this? They may not have the patchwork squares on the outside, but they are thinking and talking about them!



I guess this carful of ladies is also heading to the quilt show.




Although this quilt car is not made from actual fabric quilt blocks, the design and execution are so unique, creative, artistic and quilt like.



Smaller cars are quicker to cover with quilt blocks as you don't need as many. This one is very well done.



Even a truck can be a "quilt car"!

These are just a few of the quilt cars I have photos of and they include some of my favorites.

I remember that first photo..... it was a puzzle last year.... so fun..... but I must be getting old as I don't want a car that looks like that..... enjoying Spring.

I saw the "Tall Pines" quilted truck a few years ago and it inspired me to make one for my truck. You can see a pic of it at www.porchswingquilts.com. :)
