    Hi, this is a quilt that I made 10 years ago for my grandson. He loved Thomas The Tank. I did not have any pattern to go by. I just looked at a picture of Thomas The Tank and drew it freehand. I thought it was cute and he liked his quilt.

    That is the best Thomas quilt I've seen! My daughter would love it! She's always been a Thomas fan :)

    I am still learning how to navigate this site. I am not very good with the computer. I'm glad you liked my quilt. Sharon

    Yes I did draw it freehand and appliqued it to the fabric. It was a lot of fun coming up with my own pattern.

    Oh boy. My grandson loved Thomas also and I made him a quilt, but I used Thomas fabric. Yours is fantastic.

    Absolutely adorable quilt! We introduced our two granddaughters to Thomas the Train. We fully believed the girls would have not had a proper childhood without playing with trains :-) This is the nicest design I have seen.

    Thank you, so much, for sharing with us, Mamma Sharon.
