A few months ago, I made a quilt out of this fabric line called On Our Way from RBD. Perfect for little boys, or the engine loving little girl. ;)  Or a VW bus/transportation/peace-love-sunshine fan of any age. It was a big hit with my son and his friends (and their moms).  

 I just hadn't had a chance to blog about it. We've had so much death in the family lately.  Blah! A few weeks after my MIL passed, my FIL's last living brother passed as well. And then a couple of weeks ago, my uncle, my dad's youngest brother passed away. :(

Anyway..trying to press on and get my mojo back.

Here it is all done.  I finally uploaded the pattern into my Craftsy shop. And someone is making it already! I can't wait to see! And she is making it for her daughter so I can't wait to see her fabric choices and how it turns out. :)

I used the large print for the cornerstones and had just enough fabric left to piece a scrappy backing. I used the leftover stripes for the binding.

RBD took this one to hang in their booth in the fall so Pat quilted it for me, and look what she did.. I feel like such a loser quilter when I see the stuff she does!  

And it always fits the theme of the quilt, too!  Little peace signs and hippie flowers, my favorite flower design!

And I don't know if you can see it, but she quilted "peace and love" into the license plate!!

 Here's a photo of my mom friends holding it up at one of their houses so I could take a pic of it. (every mom needs a mom posse-ha!) :) It was a hit with the little boys, but my son has already staked a claim on this one. He will never let me give it away!  But it is super easy to make and I will get these ladies hooked on sewing one of these days!

Happy Tuesday! :)

Really cute quilt! Wish you were around designing when my boys were little!

That is such a very cute quilt. Great quilting too.

That quilt is adorable. I love patterns with one central design, and I know that it's just a small part of a fabulous quilt, but I really love how the fabric that you selected for the tires adds to the design.

Sorry for all your losses, but cute wee camper van!

I was going to say that your quilting looks amazing, lol, but I do love the quilt pattern also, very cute, would be fun to match it with Tula Pinks VW bug pillow, to make a whole bedroom ensemble.

This is seriously the cutest quilt ever! I'm in love. Lol. Looks awesome!!

How cute! Sorry about all the deaths. It seems that they come in multiples.

I am so sorry for your and your family's losses.
Your quilt design is a sure hit!

It is always sad to lose a love one. It is also a good reminder to enjoy each and every day. It looks like you are doing just that with the cute quilt design! It is so adorable!

Gosh you've had a rough time recently. Hoping everyone is in good health this coming year. I love the kombi van quilt, or as my little boys call them, hippy vans!
