Online Quilt show!

I saw that there is an online quilt show happening over at park city girl so here is my newest favorite. I made it for my second son for Christmas last year. He is two and loves trucks, cars and trains. I didn't want to do an actual pattern so each block is one of a kind and they are all log cabinish. I even added some ribbon to some of them. 

Here are the first two blocks I did. I started adding the ribbon after these.
Here it is finished and washed. B loves it and gets upset if it is not there when it is time for bed. Below is the front.
And the back. I pieced the binding which is a first for me. I normally use all the same color but I didn't want to get more fabric. I really love how it turned out. You know you did well when your son says, "I luv my tuck blankie" to you on a regular basis.
