My inspiration came from the news that a new grandchild was coming soon... Therefore, because I had wanted to learn a new quilting software program and design a special quilt; this seemed a perfect time to combine these two goals.
I choose a train because it reminded me of the one I'd see many times on my way to the place where he would grow up.
This PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-size templates for the applique pieces that have already been reversed for the fusible applique process. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project.
If you wish, you may try one of my free applique patterns to see if the method is one you would like to make.
It has been a real pleasure sharing my quilting journey with you; and to be a part of your experience, by you discovering my pattern designs.
My quilting group in the APPLIQUE MYSTERY QUILT ALONG are very creative. April will be the final month -- time to assembly our lovely applique and pieced blocks. Looking forward to seeing your self-inspired quilts!
