I like trains

Nikolas has never saw a train that he didn't love. He can tell you what kind all the different trains cars and knows the names of all the trains on Thomas the trains. Doesn't that mean he needs a train quilt?

Well, of course it does. I had searched high and low for fabric of Thomas the train. It was all very expensive. However one morning I checking things out over at Inch Worm Fabric and what did I find at a better than wonderful price? Yep, Thomas the train fabric. Jeannette had 3 yards and I got it all at that price. So now maybe I'm back on track (pun intended) to making a train quilt.

You get a free fat qtr if you spend $10. I love the fat qtr I got.
I had started the train quilt some time back. I thought I wanted to do it as a row by row. No, all other rows will be individual blocks sewn together. After doing the one row I got discouraged and laid it aside. Then I found another train applique' pattern and I found a train engine that would be applique'd on my embroidery machine.
Happy quilting!
