This choo choo train is for a little boy's birthday. He has a huge fascination with trains, so I thought a quilled train wall art would be appropriate - and fun for me as I've never quilled a train before. I tried to be creative with the cars, but as I was up until 2am finishing up this dandy piece (I wasn't watching the time and it passed right by me), I made the orange one kind of bland - so I added the gold accents to give it at least a fighting chance to be similar in complexity to the other train cars. I was going to make it a "name train" but was given great advice from a veteran quiller who said that perhaps something less personalized would be better as this gift can be handed down after the little boy is over his fascination with trains.
