Colleen's Christmas Vintage Fire Truck Quilt #2

My customer Colleen likes to make panel quilts and the newest one using this adorable vintage truck is another beauty.
Here is the "before" photo showing how it looked once it was loaded on the frame. 
There really was only one perfect chose for the stitching design for this one - the Holly Berries panto.  Glide thread in Candy apple was the right compliment for the quilt's colors.
All done.  This panto always stitches out so nicely.
Another rainy, overcast day meant the pictures had to be taken indoors.  Oh well.  You can still see how great this turned out.
How can you not just love holly berries stitching with holly berries fabric?
Another vintage red truck print was the backing Colleen provided.  Again Glide thread was used on the back, this time in Bark.
Whether Colleen is keeping this one for herself or gifting it, I'm betting it will be an annual holiday addition to the decorations. 
 Have you ever made a panel quilt?  With so many fabulous panels available, I'm betting there are some that would appeal to you.
