Trucks, Trains and Rocket Ships – Quilts for Little Boys

Is there a special little boy in your life that needs a quilt?  In a family full of boys I am always looking for appropriate patterns for both big and little boys.  This week I found a few that will make cute quilts for the little boys in your life.  (Don’t worry, I am planning a post for little girls next month!)

My little guys love trucks and trains and tractors and bulldozers and pretty much anything that makes “big noise” as my grandson tells me.  Here are a few that you won’t be able to resist.
