Put, Put, Put Little Car!

Fun, fun, fun is what I should have entitled this cute little quilt~
I took my quilting inspiration from the fabric.
There are repeats of several of these whimsical shapes in this little quilt.
See that little blue rain cloud to the right?
Before I put it on the frame, I sketched out what I wanted to do in the applique background.
I didn't want to make rain clouds, I wanted these clouds to be happy and jaunty . . .  
. . . to do that I needed a smiling sun too! 
The back is textured Minky.
The ribbon candy in the smaller border was inspired by the funky tree branches printed on the fabric. 

Fun, fun, fun....put, put, put little car~
