So may I present A Paper Pieced Paper Plane Quilt, affectionately known as the plane quilt.
This quilt is all because of my friend Erin. It was her brilliant suggestion to make a paper plane block for Le Challenge. Well I can't let my friends down, so I came up with this block. Here's the EQ7 sketch with the finished block.
Which was all fine and dandy. But a block wasn't enough. It needed to become a quilt. After many sketches, many ideas, and much time quizzing the wombats and my mum and sister on which design they liked best... I went with the above layout with 6 little paper planes happily flying about.
A bit of ouline quilting around the planes... and I even attempted some FMQ to add some squiggly bits behind each plane.
It makes for a pretty cool looking back I reckon!
And I did a quick and easy binding - using the backing fabric pulled over to the front. Perfect!
Better still - I can now tick off a finished project, and have only 3 more baby quilts to make. Woohoo!
If you're keen to try your own paper pieced paper plane - it's a free pattern in my Craftsy shop.
Yep I'm happy with this one. You might say I'm a pleased paper plane paper piecer perhaps.
Linking up with Le Challenge this month for the theme of Wings.
