This Red Truck Christmas Fun Lap Quilt Kit is a great gift you can make yourself. QuiltieSisterS has designed this quilt top to show off the red pickup truck in a simple yet interesting pinwheel and strip borders using co-ordinated Christmas fabrics. The pinwheels and borders come pre-cut using machine dies. In fact, we created a custom pinwheel die dog-eared corners making the construction simple and accurate!

This listing has two options -- purchase just the quilt kit (everything you need for the quilt top plus binding); or also add 4 yards of coordinated Home for Christmas Red Truck cotton backing for an additional $40 Cdn -- $10/yard. FYI 4 yards is the amount of backing you need when the fabric width is 42/44" fabric. Check out what the backing looks like by viewing the pictures.

Kit includes: General assembly instructions; 1 Fabric Panel: Red Truck Motif; all pieces for the tessellating pinwheels, borders and binding.
Required to complete your quilt: Enough Batting and Backing (unless you purchase a backing with your kit) for a finished size of approximately 57 X 65" Quilt.

This has delighted everyone who has seen it. It is sure to be a favorite in your house too! It is known to add warmth and comfort to your holiday décor.

First, make sure you use the thread that your machine likes the best! Checking the thread tension on your machine to make sure the tension is right (you don’t see the top thread in the bottom or vice versa) is key.

We use both cotton and cotton/polyester blend threads when we sew our quilts and find that a 50wt thread is usually better. The better quality modern polyester threads are much better than they used to be (we stay away from the cheaper polyester threads as they tend to fray). Cotton thread can tend to dry out and get brittle with age or heat (dryer), so knowing how the quilt will be used can help with thread selection.
It depends on what type of delivery service you select. According to Canada Post guidelines, here are two of the more popular delivery services that our customers have selected:

According to Canada Post guidelines, the standard delivery time for:

"Small package air" is 5-8 business days

"Tracked small package air" is 4-7 business days
The fabric in our kits is NOT pre-washed. As cotton shrinks less than 1%, we follow the practice of NOT pre-washing fabric.

When selecting backing and batting, you will want to match or reduce shrinkage:
*Cotton/Minky/Fireside) Backing, have 1% shrinkage so same as quilt top;
*Flannel backing, shrinks 3-5% so you will need to pre-wash the flannel backing to reduce shrinkage;
*100% cotton batting it will shrink 3-5% and can cause puckering. (Some people like this old-fashioned look)
80/20 (cotton/polyester blend) batting shrinks about 1% so about same as cotton top.

Once sewn, quilted and bound, your quilt can be machine washed in cold water on gentle, line dry or or lay flat to dry or tumble dry on low.
Fireside is a 150cm (60”) wide 100% polyester fabric with a soft, velvety hand that we offer as a backing choice for many of our kits.

It’s less slippery than Minkee, so some quilters find it easier to work with and provides that cuddly, soft quilt back.
Generally speaking, we like to use Hobbs 80/20 batting in our quilts as it has a 1% shrink factor, is great for washing and has a cozy soft feel.
NO, you would NOT pre-wash the cut pieces in the kit as they would fray and make sewing impossible. The current approach in quilting is NOT to pre-wash fabrics, unless they shrink more than 1%. As cotton does not shrink more than 1%, you do Not need to pre-wash cotton fabric. However, if you are using flannel for your backing you should pre-wash as it can shrink between 3-5%.
