Here's my happy boy with his new train quilt - all finished, including his name and year written on the back with a pigma pen!
The blue fuzzy fabric was hard to sew, but I managed with my walking foot and a bigger seam allowance. And - it made things a bit crooked... It won't win any "awards", but it sure wins a special spot in Little Boy's heart, which is really all that matters anyway! I stitched in the ditch along the outside of the novelty panel - just enough stitching to hold it together straight for washing.
Even though I didn't like the blue fabric (except it is ever so soft) - it was worth the effort - he loves it! Look at that smile!!!
More info: The final border is maybe a velour? Not sure! The backing is flannel.
