The Ole Pete

The Ole Pete
It's a 1993 model that we use on the farm to haul fertilizer and grain.


When our Southern Fiber Artist's group issued the challenge to make a 8"X11" piece using the theme vehicle and the color red; I thought about our old farm truck. It was mostly black with red fenders. Yes, that should work.


Using a photo filter on the computer I examined many options and finally settled on printing the outline of the truck in red and quilting over it.


Detail


I usually like to quilt +/- 1/8" lines across the quilt. This time I decided to go half way between those lines for double the quilting. You can see the difference it makes on this next picture.

And yes, I like the effect it produced. I'll have to try it again sometime.

Check out all the artsy things over at Nina Marie's "Off the Wall Friday." and Amanda's "Finish It Up Friday." and "Confessions of a Fabric Addict."
