Monster Truck Playmat

Is this not the cutest playmat you have EVER seen?! I love this panel quilt! In fact, my little boy loved it, and I'll probably have to buy it for him (trucks and cars are totally his thing right now).

I did a lot of outline quilting on this panel. Really, that's about all you can do without detracting from the cuteness of it.
In the outer printed borders I quilted around the tires, and then quilted straight lines along the left side of the lights border and the right side of the checkered border.

On the cars and Monster Trucks I stitched along the outlines of the major pieces of the picture.
You can't really tell in the picture, but in real life the quilting along the dents of the car really add depth to the panel.

I used black colored thread. I wish I had taken a picture of the backing fabric. It was tires, similar to the tires in the border of the panel. I'd put a link to a picture in here, but I can't find it on the web.
