Road Runner Quilt Pattern

Here it is, after months of hiccups, finally, I have completed the Road Runner Trapunto Quilt and be able to share the pattern and tutorial here!!!! I must also thank my son, a big fan of cars and vehicles, for his persistent “kind reminders” to pull me back to quilt his long waited quilt blanket.

This is the second quilt project I have done after my daughter’s Secret Garden Trapunto Quilt published in May last year. Most of the method is the same except the piecing of the backing. I pieced the backing fabric completely before attach it to the front piece of Secret Garden quilt, I find it a little trouble to manage the 2 huge pieces for a good alignment by flipping them back-and-forth to check. I did a little improvised method here and it is so much easier than before.

The blanket has stretched a long journey since March 2013, that was when I started the project during the finishing phase of my new house renovation. Apart from my daily busy life, juggle in between family, kids, works and craft, I need to visit the new house to check on the progress and coordinate with my interior designer on the design. Time diminishes when we get involved in too many tasks, I have to pause the quilt in between and concentrate on those in top priority. Pick up again when I am allowed to continue. Glad that we finally settle in our new house in June and that’s where my son started his kind reminder again.

I would say that quilting and any crafts need momentum and stamina to carry on. Once you have paused in the middle of the progress, you will need more courage and motivation to go back on track. That is the reason why you see that I keep on updating my craft pattern and tutorial here now and then. The longer I stop, the harder it is for me to come back again. I love sharing my pattern and tutorial in Craft Passion, as the name tells, it is my passion and my baby, I do not want it to perish without a valid reason.

My son can’t wait for the quilt to be washed, he wants it immediately after I declared that the quilt is completed!!! Oh, pity this cooperative young boy that he still has to wait for me to wash and take photos before he can use it. On that night while I tucked him in the bed with his long waited quilt blanket, he told me: “Mommy, next time if you have any project for us, please do it for me first, ok?”, I was instantly put on a guilt trip, I hugged him and promised that he won’t have to wait that long anymore.
