Haulin' Stash Quilts

Peggy made two of these great looking dump truck quilts for her grandsons, one in red and one in blue.  The pattern is called Haulin' Stash by Kelli Fannin Quilt Designs.  Now if you have this pattern please go check the designers website for the corrections, link here.  The first printing had an error and unfortunately Peggy didn't realize this until she had both top together and it wasn't measure anywhere close to the finished size.  The sash strips were not included in the instructions. So she ripped the blocks apart and added the sashing...on both!  So this is a good reminder to always check a designers correction page on their websites before starting a new project because as a pattern designer myself this can happen to the best of us!

I used Bora Bora for the pantograph, white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Peggy used grunge fabrics for the trucks and background and that really adds to the design. She also fussy cut the truck window to have a little driver in each truck.

Here is the blue one!  I think her grandsons are going to love these quilts!
