    Next I have a special quilt in the works with airplanes as the theme. For my son, who is about to enter Navy flight school. I am working on piecing the top now. Unlike this one, almost every block is different, so it is taking me a while to get it finished and ready to quilt.

    So, can you guys see my biggest mistake of the whole thing? The little booklet I started with had this pattern called Monkey Wrench, so that is what I called it. However, when I was putting the blocks together, I switched every other blue set so that the fabric was on the inside of the block on one side, but on the outside of the block on the other side. I had all the blocks finished before I noticed. :x So I left them! I decided it was a "learning" quilt anyway, and I've never been fond of ripping.

    Lockheed. On the Joint Strike Fighter group. Other than that, everything she does is secret, and she can't tell me anything. My eyes would probably glaze over if she told me, anyway. :shock:

    What I see is a wonderful quilt, awesome quilting and I love the fussy cut centers!!! :D :D :D You just made this pattern "your own" by taking the creative license of changing the design and making it better!!! :D :D :D Gidget evens agrees with me 8) 8) 8)

    Yes, the first thing I will have to do is wash it to get the dog hair off. Gidget loved to sleep on it while I was sewing the binding down. :roll:

    Wow ... that was a very ambitious pattern for your first quilt. Great job! I'm sure your daughter will treasure it;Perfect choice for an aeronautical engineer. Did you do the hand quilting too? I'm blown away ...... You are a natural, girlfriend.
