Speedy Speedster

My daughter in the Big City is a very busy girl ! One of her many interests is being on the board of a charity that supports a woman’s art festival. Each October this charity puts on a fun night out fundraiser, complete with food, drink, entertainment and silent auction. Last year I donated this quilt to the silent auction. My daughter was home this past weekend for the Canadian Thanksgiving and I was able to finish this quilt in time for her to take back with her:

The pattern is called Woven and is a new one by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew.  Her patterns are so well written; it was a pleasure to put together ! This baby sized quilt measures 35 1/2″ x 42 1/2″. I think it is a funny coincidence that the fabric collection used here is called Speedster and I was able to complete this quilt within a month of purchasing the pattern… pretty speedy for me !

With the exception of the white background fabric the prints are all scraps leftover from this disaster.

Here is a shot of the back:

I hastily stomped around in the cold wind and snow taking these pictures this past weekend so they’re not the best 🙂

I’m becoming a weather wimp !

This last picture taken indoors shows the quilting a bit better than the others. Just some straight-line quilting following the prints. I was hoping to emphasize the woven effect.

Thanks for having a look.

I’ll be linking up with Nicky and Leanne for Scraptastic Tuesday.

and with Amanda for Finish it up Friday.

    The quilt looks great and such a lovely gesture to give it away for a charity auction! I like the pattern it is simple enough and yet striking and your car fabric just suits those roads perfectly.

    I like this quilt, too. The pattern is interesting and keeps the eye moving from place to place. The quilt is perfect for a silent auction since it appeals to children, patriotic interests, and racing fans. Lots of people who will gladly put down some money! Best wishes for the fundraiser!
