The little airplane quilt is complete!
I was asked to make a quilt for a soon-to-be-born baby boy whose parents are both pilots. Because of this, I was asked to incorporate airplanes. I didn't have time to search out airplane fabric, so I found this paper-pieced airplane pattern on Quilter's Cache and got to work.
The palette features deep reds, blues, mustard yellows, and greens. I may have gone a little crazy with my combos on some blocks, but I think they all work. Fabrics include prints from Cloud9's Cut Out and Keep, Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow, Kei Honeycomb, Cosmo Cricket, Denyse Schmidt's Greenfield Hill, American Jane, and a few other lines. The grey sashing is Carolina Chambray in Ebony. The red crosshatch binding is Alexander Henry Heath in Tomato. I'm happy to say that every little bit came from my stash! Woo hoo!
I was also asked to make a coordinating doll quilt for the new big sister. I used an extra airplane block and scraps to come up with something fun.
It always feels good to finish a project, especially on such short notice! Now I've got a sewing room redo waiting for me.
