Quilt #34: Train Tracks

My 2014 quilty trip down memory lane continues with a quick quilt I made for our local quilting ministry. If you regularly follow this blog, you may recognize this pattern, This is the second quilt I made with  Made By Rae's Storytime Squares Quilt. The first was Abrahm's Packers quilt. It's a really cute, quick pattern. I'm thinking I need to use it again soon.

The inspiration for this quilt was the train fabric I bought just before my son's passion shifted from trains to space. I noticed it went well with the alphabet print in my stash. From there, it was easy to pull other red and black prints. 

I used the same quilting motif on this one as Abrahm's quilt, sans the football.

While it's been a pretty big task to go back and write about my earlier quilts, it's been super sweet to look back and find pictures of my little guy with each one. When I was out taking pictures of this quilt, some of the neighbor kids came over to inspect my work. I couldn't help but smile when I saw this gem.

I don't take a lot of photos of me with my quilts, but when I brought this quilt to my local group, my mom was visiting and came with me to meet my quilting friends. She snapped this picture of me.

I had in mind that this quilt would be part of our annual kindergartner collection, but the leaders asked if they could sell it at a craft show for a fundraiser. To be honest, I'm not sure where it ended up! Wherever it is, I hope it is being used and loved.

With that, I only have three 2014 quilts left to share! You can see a list of all the quilts I've made here (with links where available), and see photos of all my quilts here. To see what I'm currently working on, follow me at dejongdreamhouse on Instagram.
