Panel was purchased at a quilt shop in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The construction/road theme panel was an inspiration to make a little boy's quilt. I chose the border fabrics to coordinate with colors in the quilt panel. Since we have been unable to use the long arm to quilt, I machine top stitched the outline of the the construction trucks, roads, and signage.
