Baby Boys Quilt

We are getting snowed in today. I've been out twice today with my husband to shovel and plow snow. I'm done. We'll have to start again tomorrow.

I'm back in working on a quilt today that my husband asked me if I would make as a baby gift for a guy he works with. Him and his wife are expecting a baby boy in May. Here is the quilt I am working on for them.

The center is done with echo free motion quilting around the cars and the signs. The black border has a free motion quilting loop design done with clear thread, though over black it still shows up. I have yet to do the quilting over the squares. I would like to do a free motion design of loop and loop within loop, but in all my practicing I'm just not happy with my big loops. They aren't smooth and perfectly circular like I want. I'll just have to wait and see.
