    Airplane Quilt for dh

    This is what I made for my dh, but I see I positioned the quilt upside down when taking photos (oops). You get the idea anyway, I hope! It makes 5 completed quilts in my lifetime (and many more on my "want to do list." Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    I love it and I'm sure your hubby will too. You did a load of fussy cutting and the pinwheels work out perfectly with the planes as they resemble propellers! Great job!

    No, never a paratrooper; just an enthusiastic pilot of a 4 seater airplane. Got his license late in life, and now he's having the time of his life! (the fabric with vintage planes was just what I was able to find!)

    Wow, how wonderful to find exactly the right fabric. I hope he appreciates how much work went into the fussy cutting! :-) So, after five quilts are you completely hooked?

    I love your quilt! My hubby flies too and i made a raffle quilt using that same vintage airplane fabric. I made curtains for his pilot club house too. Very nice!

    Very nice. It seems like whenever I unfurl a quilt to show off to someone, 9 times out of ten it's upside down!

    It's a wonderful quilt! I love all the old style plane fabrics.
