Designer Jill McDonald has done it again with another exceptionally fun and versatile fabric collection. Her tales of transportation center around a bustling cityscape, with vehicles of all kinds and colors.
“As a mother of a little boy I love making fun, playful art. My On Track collection was inspired by transportation & the different places it can take you. To the desert, the beach, the mountains, the sea, the sky! I focused on a variety of vehicles to get you from here to there & mixed in some playful coordinates in stripes & grids.”
The cut-out vehicles can be used in many ways: stuffed individually as toys; appliquéd onto quilts, pillows and clothing; or stuffed and balanced for a wonderful child’s hanging mobile (that is, a plane-train-auto-mobile!).
Well, that’s what we thought of, and Jill had additional ideas:
“I can see a little guy resting his head on the fire truck pillow. I envision the collection being perfect in a toddler’s room (quilt, decorative pillows, fabric bins, garlands.) I can also see pajamas out of the Which Way [arrow] print or a tote bag out of the Traffic Jam [cars] print with a pocket on front of the bag out of the grid pattern. The combinations are endless & it's my hope that this collection inspires customers to travel the possibilities of my new On Track collection!”
Our quilt project, by Heidi Pridemore, is called “Rush Hour” and would be a fun topper for a kid’s bed. The pattern is free on our web site!
