HELP!!

So I need to make 2 boy quilts and don't what fabric to use! One boy is 2 years old and loves trains. The 2nd boy is on his way and will be gracing the world wit his presence in Feb.

So far the only like I have seen out there that is really boy appropriate is Sweetwater's Lucy's Crab Shack line.

Any other suggestions???

Any at all???

  2. Here's some with trains - Ready,Set, Go by Ann Kelle at the Fat Quarter Shop. Fabric.com has some Thomas the Train fabric too. Have you seen Bungle Jungle? Cute baby animals. If you google "train" fabric, you'll probably find lots more.

  3. I just made a super cute one from the Soaked line by Connecting Threads!

  4. Check out Riley Blake, they have several cute boy lines (i think some train lines). And what was the one Robot line from Robert Kaufmann?

    1. Yeah I totally forgot about Riley Blake. I love their Peak Hour, Fox trails, Woodland trails, Zoofari. They are screaming boy fabric lines.

  5. So I actually really like boy quilt fabric. Especially Riley Blake's Minds eye lines of fabric. I like http://www.fatquartershop.com/Super-Star-My-Minds-Eye-Riley-Blake-Designs.asp?Shopper_id=60231231425316023&Store_id=499 best, I made a boy quilt from All Star which was very similar but different colors they also have on the go which has planes, and trucks and maybe trains http://www.fatquartershop.com/On-the-Go-Bo-Bunny-Riley-Blake-Designs.asp?sid=157912141731181579&Store_id=499

    Then of course there is Sara Jane fabrics out to sea http://sarahjanestudios.com/blog/2012/05/introducing-out-to-sea/

    and children at play

    Oh and someone else mentioned jungle bungle. I too use this one for a little boy quilt and it was super cute. You can see the two examples of mine here http://jenniffier.blogspot.com/p/completed-quilts.html jungle bungle is near the top but all star is almost all the way at the bottom.

  6. Oh and I meant to say you could go with lucy's crab shack if you leave out the pinks, but it is a little girly on the greens not too bad but a little bit so

  11. How did the quilt go? I actually just bought some of the Crab Shack plaid for a boy quilt! When in doubt, for boys, I almost always use solids and skip the prints.
