A Quilt Finished

I finished a special quilt. My grandma embroidered the squares and I had fun adding some boyish prints to go along with the cars.

The embroidered squares are cut 6.5 X 6.5 inches, and the little squares and strips were cut 2.5 inches square or 2.5 x 6.5 inches. So the figuring is easy! With a 6-inch border this quilt ended up being about 38 X 46 inches. I'm linking up to The Blogger's Quilt Festival.
