When I gave the new quilts to my two older grandsons, (here) I could tell that the third child felt left out. Even though he hadn’t asked for a new quilt, he watched his brothers get one, so I had to make him one too.
He is a big train fan, so I went on-line and found several fabrics with train symbols and trains on them. I bought a yard of each, except for one: train tracks. Train tracks–that’s all there was on the fabric. I thought it would be perfect for a border for a boy who loves trains, so I bought three yards of that and it did make a perfect border. The tracks are just the right size for a power train to fit on with a little hand pushing the engine along the track.
I also found some other nice train fabric.
Here’s a close up of the quilting pattern I used.
And the happy grandson.
