I made this for my 3-year old nephew for Christmas.  He loves Cars so I decided to make a quilt for him.  It's my first quilt  Cheesy  It's about 44"x60".  The top is cotton and the backing is flannel.  I used low loft batting and quilted horizontally at two inch intervals.  It was a little stressful but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and I look forward to making another quilt in the future.

I think a 3 year old that loves the movie cars would love this quilt!

To help with posting, go ahead and click through to your (at least one) picture and there is a button on the bottom that says "copy to clipboard" and then you just paste it into your post somewhere.  I am also somewhat new to message boards, but I have also seen that posts with pictures get way many more views than posts without.  And you can edit your original post by clicking modify.  I hope this is helpful

Aww- that's too cute!  I love it when people back with flannel, it's so soft and toasty warm!

My best friend's son would get such a large charge out of that one- I bet your nephew loved it too!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

That's really cute.  I also love quilts backed in flannel.  They're so cosy, and flannel always seems warm when you put it on.  The cars fabrics are really cute too.
