My son Eli, who I call Bug, is 2 years old and when he got a big boy bed (Thomas the Train, of course!), he needed a new quilt to celebrate the occasion.  My hubby found some pretty cute train fabric at Joann a few months before and we bought some, with nothing in particular in mind about how to use it.  I decided to go with a simple patchwork using large squares (finishing at 10″ each).

He loves blankets, which makes me super happy as a quilter!  He would probably roll around in them all day if we let him…

I made the backing using what was left, but I forgot to take a photo of it.  It was bound in a solid blue that I also picked up at Joann.

I sent this one to Dan’s aunt & uncle to quilt on their longarm.
