    I Think I can

    I made this baby quilt for a lovely lady that I met on the QB. We decided I would make one especially for her new grandbaby. She knew it would be a boy and the MTB was thinking ‘train’ theme for the nursery.
    I enjoyed making this quilt so much! I made the pattern for the trains (they are paper pieced) and hand appliqued the wheels. The prairie points and little tabs are there for baby to practice his ‘grabbing’ skills.
    I put pockets in the upper corners of the back so it could be hung should she want to use it as a wall hanging. One pocket doubles as a label.
    All of you on the QB have been so kind in your comments on my quilts and I have my first cup of coffee with you most mornings, but it was very special to actually work with one of you on a quilt! Thank you!

    One of the cutest baby quilts that I have seen. The quilting is awesome. MAN you did a great job on this quilt (wallhanging). I can see a little boy draging this around when he gets older. The back is kool also. BrendaK

    Love, Love, Love this quilt. What an adorable wall hanging/quilt. Hope Mom will let him use it. Great job on the quilting, as always. The extra tags and such make it a great gift for a child.
