The most favorite quilt I ever made is a Thomas the Train quilt that I made for my baby son.


This quilt is the perfect size for a small crib. It's washable and it is small enough that it is easily transportable. We put the quilt in our pack and play crib that is also transportable.

I love that the colors. They are simple and the theme is perfect for a little boy.

I like that it has a sewn in pillow area for sleeping, napping or for even laying it down anywhere for a quick diaper change mat. That is what we tend to use it for the most now, because it is lightweight and can easily be carried from room to room.

This really is a simple design and can be made quickly. It is a 3 color scheme. So it could easily be made for a girl by changing it to different colors. There is only one train appliqué, so that character could easily be changed to suit the theme desired for a boy or girl.

The trim is simple, but one could easily add a fringe trim, lace trim or pom pom trim to make it extra special. Also, the amount of stuffing is minimal in this project, although double layer quilting fluff could be used for more padding. Additional stuffing could be added to the pillow area for a firmer pillow as well.

This is only a 2 – 4 hour project depending on someone’s skill level. It really is a quick and easy pattern to make. It’s such a simple pattern and quick project that makes it perfect to make as a gift for a baby.
