    Ok, here are some pictures of the train car quilt I made for my nephew. Remember I am a beginner and this is my first quilt. I have to even the sides up and add borders. I'll post another picture again when the borders are on.

    Your quilt is turning out really, really cute. How ever did you make that little tractor on the flat bed? Are you sure you're only a beginner?

    Thank you Yvonne. For the tractor...I cut out a piece of fabric that had the tractor on it and then hand stitched it on. I counldn't get my machine to zig zag it on nicely, not that the tractor looks that great. I was contemplating on taking it out. If I leave it on I have to get fabric markers and color in the tan thread that shows on the tractor.

    I think the tractor looks great!!! I wouldn't color the thread, for fear it might bleed when it's washed into the white. I've seen a lot of applique work where the thread was a contrasting color and it's always looked great!! You're doing a wonderful job!!

    That's quiet a train car for a "beginner"! You did great! My grandson loves trains also, did you use a pattern or make it up yourself. You really did do a wonderful job on it!
