    I was given several pieces of fabric today to make a charity quilt and I would like to make it with a Thomas the Train theme because of the fabrics. I can add to it, but need to use each of the fabrics provided. The finished quilt should be about 40X60. I thought I would see what this great group had to offer!

    I am not the best designer but I would use those trains in a fussy cut, in a focus part of the square.

    I would use the stripe for the binding. I love striped bindings!

    I going to do one for my grandson, he's fascinated with trains. This is the pattern I'm going to use - it was a freebie. I will be using the Thomas fabric for the borders/back and coordinating stuff I bought, along with some of my stash for the blocks.
