Locomotion!



Locomotion!  I made this quilt for a friend who recently retired.  I found several images of engines: two were old photos, one a graphic image, and I combined the features I liked best into my own drawing.  I fused the white, then used silver metallic thread to highlight the wheels, front and rails.  I like the way it turned out, and it pushed me to do something out of the ordinary for me.
