Zach's Quilt

I made this quilt for my nephew Zach (who just turned 23) back in approximately 1992.  The label on the back has faded so much it’s illegible. 

The quilt is machine pieced and hand appliqued.  I machine quilted it.  It measures 58 in X 73 in.  The pattern was for the race cars, but I found the brown fabric with a western theme to use as the “dirt” so I could add more “boy” interest to the quilt.
The border fabric adds to the cowboys to the mix.

It's always so interesting to see how you piece these quilts together. I love all the various ones you have done. You do such beautiful work.

I like the racecars and checkered flags. What a fun theme for a boy. They remind me of the boy scouts' pinewood derby cars!
