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!
