That is just so cute. I love that. It could make a cute afghan if you made a plain square and added that on. I love this...

is the only difference between your tractors the colors for each style?? (1 is red,the john deer 1 is green, etc) or is each 1 more different from each other than i can see off hand? Reason I ask, is, I was thinking of doing this for a cousin of mine and if each was a diff pattern, was going to ask for the others.

Thank you, your pattern/quilt is awsome

What a great idea! You could even crochet a blanket to look like a farm and place the tractors in the fields. Thanks for sharing!!
