It’s time for another sneak peek, and today we’re thrilled to give you a look at All Aboard with Thomas & Friends, a fun new collection filled with the lovable cast of train-themed characters that have secured a special place in so many childhood imaginations.
Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends™ is based on the Railway Series by The Reverend W. Awdry. The fabrics feature cheerful and hardworking Thomas, his train friends, fun little train icons, a simple train silhouette, and a fabulous text print that works as a great blender piece.
The collection features the bright, classic Thomas the Tank Engine color palette in shades of blue, yellow, green, red, and white.
Take a closer look at the Main print. The adorable little engines, puffing down the tracks, are wearing the well-known expressions kids have come to use to identify each character. The main print is available in Blue (shown here), White, and Yellow.
The Sodor print highlights side profiles of the engines, along with scenes from the Island of Sodor Thomas fans will immediately recognize. The Sodor print will be available in Yellow (seen here), Green, and White.
We love text prints, and this tone-on-tone Text print is loaded with the character’s names, train-themed sayings such as, “Right on Time,” and of course, train tracks meandering through the words. The Text print comes in Green (shown here), Navy, and Blue.
Of course, we had to include a fabric panel! This 36″ panel features a giant-sized Thomas the Tank Engine surrounded by Percy, Henry, Toby, James, Gordon, Nia, and Emily. Sew it up just as it it, and this panel would make the perfect baby quilt, or add borders and blocks to create a larger toddler or child-sized quilt.
We seriously can’t wait to start creating with these fabrics! We’re dreaming up quilts, nursery items, pajamas, pillowcases, and so much more! What will you create with All Aboard with Thomas & Friends™?
