Car Cover

Hi Everyone,

I haven't had as much quilting time as usual lately.  I'm afraid I've spent a lot of free time reading real books, as opposed to listening to audio books while I sew.  What time I've been spending is just appliqueing more dresdens on my Dresden quilt, so it isn't anything too interesting.

I have something really fun to show you, though.  A group of ladies that I knew in Hawaii made this great car cover and I figured you may like to see it!  I think it is just incredible.

These photos were taken at the 2013 Women's Expo in Honolulu.

The car underneath is a 2012 Prius.  I just love the Hawaiian quilt touches!  And the flag of course!

The talented group that created this lovely piece are The Pupule Quilters: Beverly and Susan  –Project Coordinators  and contributors: Kay, Joan, Mona, Tahmi, John, MaryAnn, Rick, Carol, Carla, Linda, Jeanie, and numerous friends who donated quilt blocks.

Have a great day,


  1. Wow...I'd never make one but fun to see.

  2. I love it - very colorful.

    I saw a similar cover one year in Sisters, OR and posted about it here:

  3. Cute! Everytime I see one, I think I would love to make one, but it would happen much more quickly if I owned a Volkswagen Beetle and not a big SUV!

  4. Love it! That's what I can do with all those orphans and UFOs.

  5. Wow! That’s really great. This was the one I was looking for. Thanks for your awesome 9 dos to winterize car before putting on Car Covers. I would implement them for this winter. Need to appreciate your efforts. Keep it up!!

  6. will consider the social, economic and political factors of Waterproof car cover. I really, really like Waterproof car cover. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite society, it is important to remember that ‘what goes up must come down.’ Inevitably Waterproof car cover is often misunderstood by those politicaly minded individuals living in the past, who are likely to form a major stronghold in the inevitable battle for hearts and minds. Complex though it is I shall now attempt to provide an exaustive report on Waterproof car cover and its numerous 'industries'.
