Airplane Quilt.......Piecing

I have had this airplane pattern for 

20 years or more...

It is time to create a baby quilt...

No rotary cutting directions in this pattern...

Just templates to cut out.

My template making skills are rusty.

It has been awhile since I've 

done this sort or piecing.

Here is the first block cut out and 

ready for piecing...

There were no directions at all in the pattern.

They did include a piecing diagram.

I pinned it to the flannel board for reference.

I started piecing from the tail of the plane

and worked my way up to the propeller...

By Saturday evening.....4 airplane blocks done.

I was out to the barn early on Sunday

to get the animals fed and the chores done

so I could spend the day in the Thread Shed...

6pm Sunday evening...

The airplane quilt top is complete.

46 inches square.

Tomorrow I will get this basted

and on the Sweet 16 this week.

p.s.  I finished The Kittens Quilt top, but

forgot to take a photo.

It is ready for machine quilting.

I will share images soon.

More to Come!
