I am also working on a quilt for a baby boy who's family loves to fly planes. So what better on a quilt that a bunch of planes.
I don't like to make my baby quilt too juvenile (novelty prints etc) because I like to imagine that they will be kept for many years to come. So I decided to make paper pieced planes with Kona solid in Navy on a plain Kona White background.
I wanted to do a navy & white stripe fabric for the backing but wasn't able to find any that I liked so I made my own.
It is now basted ready to quilt. I am thinking of outling the planes and then quilting a propeller design in the center of each plain block.
