My First Quilt........DONE!

I am FINALLY done with my first quilt. I made this especially for Preston as a coming home with baby gift in his favorite theme: Thomas The Train. I thought it would be nice to give him something special for being the big helpful brother that he is. It's a queen size quilt which will fit perfectly on his bed in the winter months. It's very heavy and very, very warm. I did not realize how time consuming or the amount of work this involved, but I'm sure glad I didn't know otherwise I probably wouldn't have started it :) I was so proud of myself for completing a task like this because I sometimes start things, but never finish them. I think this turned out soooo cute!

Preston was absolutely thrilled when he saw this quilt for the first time. He had such a huge smile from ear to ear asking if this was his. He can't wait to put it on his bed, but the unfortunate part is, the weather is warming up so he just might have to wait awhile before he can use it.

Another view of the quilt at a different angle.

A closer look at the blue Thomas The Train material.

The back of the quilt.

I used a pattern Thomas The Train red material on the back to give it a little extra look instead of it being all red.


  1. WOW! This is awesome. Way to go. And you're not the only one who starts things and doesn't see them through completely. I know someone else...??? ;) What a great big brother gift.

  2. this is soooooo great!!! i love the pattern and the fabric looks so fun! just turn on the fan in his rrom or turn down the AC and he can use it a while longer.... heheheh

  3. It looks great. Good job. I made two baby size ones before. I should make one for my daughter!

  4. Wow! That's soooo SUPER!!! Great job!!!
