Completed: January 5th
Logan’s quilt was commissioned by a very nice lady at my husband’s work who had seen the original ‘Jake’ quilt on my flickr stream. Logan is her first grandchild, who is due to be born any day now. Normally I don’t think I’d be keen on duplicating a quilt, but this little train quilt is really a lot of fun to put together.
She requested that I use the same color scheme, but as this quilt is a scrap bin special, I had to substitute in a few similar fabrics this time around. I also used a diferent font — without serifs — for the lettering, just for my own sanity. Applique is not my speciality, and after attaching 35 wheels, I ran out of steam.
The original inspiration for this quilt came from this website, however the page seems to have been moved since I used it two years ago. Never fear — you can always check it out using the Wayback Machine.
Hopefully someday I’ll be able to make a girly version of this quilt… I’m envisioning pinks, oranges and yellows with a circus-y theme.
