Good Morning, Quilters!
I had a great time making Henry’s Baby Quilt–creating a village with a variety of cars and trucks. (See more about Henry’s Quilt HERE). The machine quilting tutorial for Henry’s Trucks can be found HERE
Several of you requested a tutorial for The Car…
THE ZIPPY CAR-A MACHINE QUILT TUTORIAL
In this sample, the lines are one inch apart–this will give you a start–but the motif can be adjusted to any size.
Begin half way between the bottom two lines. Create two “steps” with rounded edges.
Stitch a window, by stitching an elongated oval.
Stitch another elongated oval to create a second window.
Stitch a short line parallel to the bottom line, then stitch a circle–one and 1/2 half revolutions-to create the tire.
Add a short dash (between the tires)…
Add a second tire–1-1/2 revolutions–and a dash to the front bumper of the car.
Echo stitch the bottom of the car and tires, add a little scribble “exhaust” and you are ready to begin the next auto!
Isn’t that zippy?
Once you know the Basic Car, you manufacture all makes and models by changing the proportions and angles…it’s fun and easy!
