So, onto Plan C. I had some adorable car and truck fabric in my stash, and I was reminded of this tutorial by Amy at Diary of a Quilter. Here is the beginning of the quilt, laid out on my "design wall."
Here's a closeup of the truck/car fabric. I'm pretty sure it's Michael Miller.
The positive is that I busted more stash by switching horses mid-stride! I will use the remainder of the car fabric for a border and put whatever's left over on the back or use it for the binding.
I do still plan to stitch up the other quilt - maybe even cut a few more pieces and make two Preemie quilts for my Guild's charity.
