Antique Airplane Baby Quilts

  Here is some kinda sophisticated baby boy quilts I did up this week.  I have had this fabric for awhile because I bought it for my little boy I thought I was having but then popped out a girl :).  I didn't want to cut up the airplane fabric too much because it was too nice, and you wouldn't get the full effect. 

  I used my accuquilt Go! to cut out some tumbler blocks to frame the fabric.  Then added some quilted blocks to clean up the corners.  I made two identical quilts to put in my etsy shop.  Each quilt is around 42" x 52".

  I went to go top stitch them and really didn't know which pattern to choose.  I eventually decided on a stars and loops pattern.  There are stars on some of the airplanes so I thought it would be a nice match.  I used dark red GLIDE thread and it stands out, but not too much.  I love the all over designs because the quilt is so beautiful from both sides.

  1. Great job. I love the fabric

    I took my young grandson, he's 2 1/2, to see the new Disney movie 'Planes' last week. This is what the planes are like in the movie.
