Heather’s Airplane baby quilt
Heather made this sweet quilt using airplane fabrics and some of her grandson’s clothing. She told me it was going to hang on her grandson’s bedroom wall, so I wanted to add a custom touch.
The following pictures are close ups on different parts of the quilt and then a picture of the full quilt at the end. I love all the texture that the lines added to the random sized blocks. I used two of Linda from the Quilted Pineapple, edge rulers to do the straight lines. I love her 8” and 12” rulers. I could have done the quilting with just one ruler, but I like using the 8”, and there are times when I needed the ruler to be a little longer. That’s when I used the 12” ruler.
I quilted this with a yellowy cream Perma Core thread from A&E, and Heather brought a Hobbs batting.
I just love seeing the designs complement one another.
On some of these blocks I used a purple water soluble pen for marking reference dots. That way the quilting and is more proscise and is a lot quicker to quilt out.
The full shot! I love the personality that quilting brings to the quilts.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy Wednesday!
