Last month a young family that I know lost their home to fire.
Beckham and his big sister lost everything they own.
So I got busy making quilts.
This one is for Beckham, who is an energetic toddler. I used Thomas the Tank Engine fabric because what two-year-old boy doesn’t love Thomas? And woah! Thomas the Tank Engine backing, too! What’s not to love?
The pattern is called Ring Toss, from the book Quilt it with Love: the Project Linus Story. I hand quilted it using the Big Stitch method with yellow-gold Perle cotton. The center of each ring is hand-tied with embroidery floss.
I’m making a quilt for Beckham’s big sister, too. I’ll post it as soon as it’s finished, so stay tuned!
