Thomas the Train

Here is the latest quilt in this series. I had some Thomas the Train fabric and since both of my grandsons are fans, I decided to make quilts. (The other is still at the long arm quilters.) Around the sides of the Thomas panel I used the rail fence block design. I call this quilt - Thomas I. It has some of the same fabric in it as the Playhouses.

This week I won't be doing too much quilting. Some of my friends are coming for the Writers at the Beach Conference this coming weekend and I have to get my sewing machine and fabric put away so the guest bedroom can be used.

I have been working on some other crafts, too. This is a box that I covered using fabric that is from the valance in our bathroom. The box was painted with crafts paint, then sprayed for the shiny finish. Beads were added to outline the fish and some of the bubbles. The fabric was glued with a layer of quilt batting on the top. Ribbon was glued around the edges.
