This quilt is a collaboration between me and our son-in-law's grandmother. When his grandma died, my daughter found this quilt top that she had made by hand. It showed signs of aging, but my daughter asked if I might be able to "do something" with it for my grandson, Joey - for his "big boy" bed. To make it appeal to a 2 year old boy, I appliqued rectangles of novelty fabric (vehicles and buildings) to the white blocks. I then had Carol Hartman quilt it for me - she used motif of little cars and the words "beep beep." We love it - especially Joey, the recipient.
