WE Deere John

I'm finally able to get back into sewing.....at least for the next 5 weeks.

DH named this quilt Deere John as it's made with tractors. (chuckle) I think I like the controlled scrappy look of this one better than the total scrappy of the WE frogs.

I love it, Sharon. The controlled scrappy is pleasing to the eye. A nice quick idea for little people quilts.

Thanks, Vasu. It did go fast and is a good pattern for theme fabrics.

glass, DH comes up with some good ones once in awhile. Maybe I'll tell him it's his job to name my quilts! lol

My son would LOVE it!! Anything tractor is now called a 'john deere'! I too think the name is perfect!

Thanks, Jennifer. I tried to make the TOT fabric go along with farming.....blue for sky, brown for earth and green (although a bit subdued) for growth. Except for the TOT's, they were a bundle of FQ's I bought on Ebay (Judy's friend). There's enough fabric left for another one, but I think it'll have to wait awhile. I have 2 quilts I want to finish (they need quilting) before going up north in 4 weeks, plus I want to get the squares sewn together for the Scrappy Mountains for my DD and her new house. busy busy busy...... @:)

I love the border material you used.

Rosa, If the border fabric you're talking about is the yellow and green plaid, that came with the FQ bundle and I had to piece it to get enough length. I could have done a better job matching it up at the corners, though.....never even thought about it until it was over and done with. DUH!
