Someone Give Me an Award!!

 I am back with my third 'Finish it up Friday' in a row!!  I am still on summer vacation but it looks as if all good things must come to an end because our homeschool curriculum arrived in the mail yesterday.  School starts on Monday! 

 This quilt top was finished in the spring but I brought it back to Michigan to be long-armed quilted. I loved how it turned out. I added the binding this week and now I believe this will belong to my youngest son Josiah.  He loves cars and all kinds of transportation (like most boys) and the quilt I started for him last year may never get finished.
 I collect all types of transportation fabric.  Every time I see a new print I snag a fat quarter or half yard.  I will have to show you my collection some time.

 I backed this quilt with a light blue voile.  I was concerned that it would cause trouble for the long arm quilter but she said it was fine.  It gives it a very soft feel.  When it isn't 85 degrees here I am sure Josiah will enjoy snuggling under this quilt!
I am linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish it Up Friday!!  Have a great week!!
