    This is my very first quilt. Started in fall of 2007. I gifted it to my nephew. He really liked trains. Doesn't play with them anymore really but he liked the quilt.

    It measures 74X89". It is machine pieced and hand quilted.

    Enjoy the pics.

    Kyia, your train quilt for your nephew is absolutely adorable. Your hand quilting is very nice! I know this was a work of art and will be treasured.

    It is my first pieced quilt and first starting to quilt. But I completed some smaller quilts before this one was finished.

    Thank you all for you kinds words.
