Middle-Man's Train & Polar Bear Quilt


It's quite a juxtiposition there: trains & polar bears. I suppose if you are thinking about The Polar Express (which he frequently is), then these two things do go together. Initially, I was skeptical how I'd use these fabrics together, but I think the quilt top is coming together well. The back is also pieced, but is predominantly the polar bear fabric. Hopefully next week I can show the completed top. It needs a 6" medium-blue border & an inner border of train tracks. I think that I will have the winding train track motif quilted into the blue border too.
