Logan’s Train Quilt

I’m thrilled to present my first finished quilt of 2012! Logan's Train Quilt

Completed: January 5th

Look familiar? That might be because it’s based off of a quilt I made around Christmas 2009. A Quilt for Jake

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. Logan's Train Quilt

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.

Looking at the original, you’ll notice that mine is a bit different, because I made some changes (like adding in the flat cars for the letters) and mostly just eyeballed the pattern for measurements. My Favorite Locomotive

Here it is all wrapped up and ready to go. Best wishes for baby Logan’s arrival! Wrapped Up... Ad Ready To Go!

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.
