    I'm trying to start a quilt for my 3 year old son. I love the look of pottery barn, but i can't seem to find any pattern where there might be some trucks or cars on there. i don't necessarily want a traditional repetitive quilt, but something with large blocks, and a few appliqued trucks (gasp, applique! i said it out loud! i've NEVER appliqued) anyways,
    i have a quilt in mind that i found at pottery barn, but i really would like some kind of pattern to get me started.
    thanks for reading! :)
    p.s. it seems anything quilting related for boys is a hard find, so if any of you can direct me in the right path... :)

    I know I have found applique train quilts patterns for free online. Google- free train quilt pattern. You will find a lot of great sites to check out along the way.

    Also- how are you artisticly- can you draw some outline shapes to applique? Have fun designing your own.

    this is a fatcats kid's pattern. they only do the barest outline for applique,but it's easy enough to figure it out.

    are you doing machine applique or needleturn?

    okay, i'm going to check out what 'fatcats' is. i'm so excited!

    i'm suspecting i'll tackle machine applique...any tips would be great!

    and barbm, i'm not sure if i'm confident enough to actually design my own quilt!!! but if i get desperate enough...

    thanks for the help so far...

    coloring book pages are great places to get applique patterns. Just trace the parts you want. you can get quite a variety.
