    In case you don't remember, I started to make a Thomas the Train quilt for my boss's grandson who just broke his leg. His name is Thomas and he thinks that Thomas the Train was named for him.

    I just got the Thomas the Train quilt top completed. Now just the sandwiching and quilting and the treaded binding to go.

    Sorry for the messy room, I'm trying to organize my stash and haven't gotten it all put away.

    Just got the blocks quilted and tomorrow night (if I get done with work on time), I'm going to quilt trains in the sashing. Wish me luck!

    Anyone have a suggestion for how to quilt the borders? I'm stuck there :lol:

    Thanks

    Are they trains embroidered? They almost look it. I am currently hunting for Thomas designs in embroidery (.ART) for my Bernina.

    You did an awesome job.
