Tysons Garage

Pam, one of my Saturday students, wanted to make a quilt for her little nephew Tyson who turns 1 very soon!! We had a bit of a talk about what she might like and then she went off to pick some fabrics.......brighter the better is Pams way of picking fabrics lol!! And then it became a class project to construct the quilt:

It still needs some borders but this is Tysons Garage........bright, funky and heaps of fun to watch grow each week.

I designed the cars.....these guys remind me of the Partridge Family Bus and when you look at them you almost expect them to go "beep beep":

Sally designed the centre panel complete with garage, petrol station and car wash. All of our Saturday ladies have had some input into the quilt. Pam is thrilled with the end result although i do tease her and say that Tyson will never sleep under it, its too "loud" lol. I love it!!

Goes to show what a little bit of imagination and a huge burst of colour can create!!!
