Colleen's Vintage Truck Panel Quilt

Between shopping, decorating, preparing for the holidays and celebrating the birthdays of both of my kids, the month of December is always extra crazy for me so now that the largest extent of the tasks are over, I can catch up with the last of the customer orders that I've quilted recently.

This is Colleen's vintage truck panel quilt.  Vintage trucks seems to be a popular theme this year.  I've seen lots of new holiday decorations with the motif.
I don't remember who she was gifting it to, but I'm sure the person is going to love it.
Before quilting.  Colleen added 2 simple borders on the panel to make it bigger.
The panel itself includes so many adorable holiday images, like the snowman and the puppy in the truck bed, helping to deliver the gifts.
Here's the on the frame, in process pic.  Isn't the little bunny so cute?  Glide thread in Candy Apple was her choice for the top thread.
Colleen chose the Snow Winds panto which showcases pretty snowflakes and point swirls.
The backing fabric is the same print as the outer border on the front.  In this photo, you can see how nicely the stitching shows on the back.  Glide thread in White was used in the bobbin.
It's great that the fabric companies are producing really wonderful panels that make it so easy for a piecer to stitch up a beautiful quilt to gift to a friend.
I just might have to search around the web to see if there are any panels that catch my eye.
