This is Lorna's Airplane quilt and it is just adorable! It is made from the pattern Out of the Blue by Blue Meadow Designs. She made it for a little boy who's father is a pilot.
Since it is for a child I like to keep the quilting light so they have a soft quilt to cuddle with.
I did simple wavy lines to add motion in the sky and echoed the clouds to give them a fun cartoon feel.
The border was a bit of a challenge as it was hard to see where I was going when I was quilting, I matched the green thread too well!
I thought since the outer border was green that it needed grass and trees on it and then a little airplanes flying loop-de-loops above the trees. I used a stencil of a tree and repeated that design around the quilt.
