Down on the farm

Of all the quilts I've made, I dare say this one might me the most loved by its recipient. John Deere quilt
 I used this tutorial from Moda Bake Shop. Just framed squares and 16 patches. (If you want to make this tutorial, read it all the way through. It's made for precuts, of course, and it makes way more squares than you need.)

John Deere fabrics from Wal-Mart (naturally), along with some other matching prints. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by how the Wal-Mart prints washed up. They're soft, and there was no bleeding. I did not prewash (!).

 Untitled
More tractors and excavators and such on the back. I used leftover strips from the 16 patches for binding.

Back soon with another finish! Kind of on a roll.

Yes, he is going to love it. Did I tell you he went to the orchard and wouldn't go on a tractor ride because they were Farmall tractors and not John Deere?

"and such"? Katie, are we going to have to have a farm equipment lesson? Seriously though, it looks great and I'm sure it will be very well loved!
