So you wanted to see the top of “Chugging Along”, right?
Drum roll please!
Some detail shots too?
Here you go!
Here is the front:
I have got three rows done, using all of the blocks in the “Chugging Along” set, except for one. I want to add more rows, just NO MORE LITTLE TRAINS for this moment.
I have been working on them for three months now and I would like to work on something else now. I have an idea already for some more rows to add to the three I already have. Something with some buildings and “stuff”. Just wait and see, okay!?
Some more pictures, you ask?
These next pictures were part of one large picture I made in Photoshop for my movie. Sadly that did not work out and I used the computer drawings instead! The order of some of the photographed blocks in this “collage” is a bit different from the real quilt top.
I also wanted to show you the wheels again. I added some more different styles and fabrics. Some modern and geometric, others more floral and traditional.
By the way, I used all kinds of fabric styles in this quilt top. I had fun doing that! It was liberating to mix to my heart’s content!
OH, and then there was this…
I said that I had had enough of little trains, right?
Just the little ones!
I made a JUMBO train!
I scaled up the pattern by 250% so it ended up being 20 x 20 inches. I have added borders to get to 30 x 30 inches. Would make a nice baby quilt!
The dark colour is a navy. I plan to use that for the binding too. The wheels came out of a vintage sheet. On this sheet there were all kinds of circles , mostly in pink and red. Luckily there were also three of these green swirly ones!!! I am so looking forward to some FMQ on this baby quilt!

I hope your week will be sunny and joyful!
