Race Track Play Mat

I finished up this little Race Track play mat for Jimmy over the weekend. David has given him many hot wheels cars, and I figured he needed a racetrack. I used I-Spy blocks for the base. The checkered flag border (and backing!) is left over fabric from curtains I made for Jimmys room. It did not come out like I envisioned, but I like it! I had seen one ages ago on a blog, and hers was with Drunkards path blocks. Well, I didnt want to do all that curved piecing (HA!) so I thought, I will make bias tape... The roads are about 2 inches wide. The mat measures about 33 inches square. There is one dirt road and two highways, with stoplight (buttons) at the intersection. (That was dear hubbys idea!) Jimmys favorite I-Spy block is the guitars -- can you find it? :o)

Thanks for looking!
