Construction Trucks "Bargello" Baby Quilt

This quilt was made for my cousin's baby Nolan who is due any day now! I used the stash buster #4 pattern from Just Get it Done Quilts and some adorable Dear Stella Designs yardage. The back is light blue cuddle minky and the binding is white satin blanket binding.

I tried a "bargello" style quilt before and I really disliked it, but this pattern was easy and came out much better! In fact, it was kinda hard to give this one away because I like it so much! (That happens a lot, but I do manage to give them away anyway.) I think this pattern works great with the directional fabric and I love how the dark digger fabric makes it look like the trucks are in a tunnel. 

For the quilting I used a combo of straight line, wavy line, and free motion meandering on my home machine  following the lines on the fabric, which made a really cool effect on the back!
