Tom's Big-Boy Quilt

 I like to make a flannel baby quilt for additions to the family.

Here is my grand-nephew's baby quilt.

Safari Baby

Once kids get big enough for a bed (rather than a crib), I like to make them a big-boy or big-girl quilt.

This big-boy quilt started with the backing--I wanted to use this Thomas (as in Tank Engine) fabric since my grand-nephew's name is Thomas.


I didn't know how I wanted to do the front, but the RR crossing sign gave me the idea to use Xs.

I used some novelty fabrics in it for a bit of I-Spy fun.

I finished it with a striped binding which I love (though it made me dizzy to cut it out!).

This was a fun project, and I enjoyed making it.

Happy Quilting!


  1. What a great quilt! I know Thomas will love it!

    1. Thanks, Cheryl! His mom says he loves looking at all the different characters and animals on the fabrics. :)

      Thank you for visiting. I appreciate it very much.
