Hot Wheels Road Quilt

Updated: Feb 9, 2022

Project by Nicola Hills

You will need:

1 Set of Hot Wheels Fat Quarters

2.5 Metres of Plain Fabric




Rotary Cutter (useful but not essential)

Sewing Machine

Basic Sewing Kit

How To: Iron the fabrics.

Cut 45 x 6” squares out of the Fat Quarter Set.

Cut 2.5” strips from the width of the plain fabric.

Cut 2.5” x 6” rectangles from the plain fabric.

1. I cut 9 - 6”x 6” Squares from each of the 5 fabrics in the fat Quarter set = 45 in total.

Top Tip

I used a 1/4” seam allowance through.

2. Lay the 6” x 6” prepared squares out with the plain

2.5” x 6” in between as in the picture below.

Sew right sides together to create one vertical row.

Press all seams out flat to limit bunching.

3. Next use the 2.5” x Width of fabric strips you cut from the plain fabric.

Place them top of the first row R/S together, pin to secure and sew down, press seams out to neaten.

4. Once you have connected all 9 rows, press with the iron. It is now time to add the wadding and backing.

5. Once the wadding is sandwiched between the backing and quilt front, clip or pin to secure.

I chose to quilt straight lines down the grey vertical lines, but you can top stitch however you wish.

6. The final step is to bind the edge (you can see many of my other tutorials on how to bind a quilt edge)

Now add some Hot Wheels and Play!!!
