Andrew celebrated his 5th birthday on Sunday and I can't believe how fast these five years have flown by.
As with his previous birthdays, I made him a quilt. I'm not sure I will always make them a quilt for their birthdays, but Julie bought this train panel from the garage sale table at Shipshewana last fall, so I had a starting point for this one.
Dan gave me suggestions for the sashing color and I drew out plans for some railroad track borders and as they say, the rest is history.
Here he is with his quilt at the party. Julie says he likes it and that's what counts, right!
My original plan was for the tracks to go all the way around, but once I got the center pieced, I thought it would have been way too long for his bed.
I bought a fat quarter of train fabric at the show and cut a piece for the label:
The backing is flannel, so it will be a snuggly quilt!
