    I was just going to say something very similar. I think it's a brilliant quilt, and I love your background treatment.

    You did an awesome job quilting it. I love the little touches of things like the airplane propellers. I love the way it turned out.!!!
    Thanks for the pattern, I will do this one, it may not be this year but I will have to make it too.

    That's awesome! My dad would love your quilt. He was a pilot in WWII and a private pilot as a profession. It would be so fun to make him one, it looks difficult, was it?

    Great quilt. I love the colors and the planes are awesome. Did you do the pattern yourself. I really like it.

    I love your quilt. I've always wanted to make one sorta like it, because there are so many pilots in our family. You've put so MANY things into it - fields, and flying geese, and tetrahedrons, and sky, and propellers, and flags, and the spectacular Mariner's Compass, and airplanes of course! I'm sure I missed a few symbols. Love it, love it, love it :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Amazing! Did you hand quilt it? What a great work of art! I just love the close up of our American flag!

    It did take me a long time to piece the top together. But, the airplane blocks and the mariner's compass block are the new paper-piecing technique, and I had never done that before.

    I did have to put it on a design board to figure out the correct color placement. And since basically so many blocks are different, there was no assembly-line action, it was pretty much just piece each block one at a time.

    After that, well, I hand-quilted it. And that is just as slow as it sounds, but not harder than any other.

    Well, I made it for my son who is in Navy Flight school right now, so I hope big boys like it, too! Thanks!
