The Plane! The Plane! (said by short man in white suit)

WIP - I have had this pattern downloaded for awhile now. Was always planning boring (as R said) blues and whites for it.
Then we got this Challenge fabric and its just said to me "Airy"

The white is a pillow cover for this awesome feather pillow I got at Ikea in the as is section for 5 dollars. One of those hoarding situations again!
So Im making the piece fit that.

Starting to look like something. All that work got done at the VMQG All day sew in. I got so much done that day.

Now, Im so freaked out about quilting it. Thin lines the length like air? Free motion like clouds?  A big spiral, like the missing plane? (eek) Ill decide tomorrow!

I will also find the original link and credit etc. 


Heart Pillow

I saw a bunch of people doing Pixel Quilts and though "hey I can do this"
Cut it all out and fiddled for a few days, then one day came home and R had made a perfect heart shape.
BUT when I was sewing it together I messed up and made two blocks the same touch and boy is she still mad about it! 
Sailing Ships
This is another one of those "Hey I can do that" kinda things. Its pretty traditional but I like it. Its for a 6 year old boy. White may not be a good idea but why not?

The two fronts with forms inside
I had some water fabric for years and years. Guess all that hoarding pays off sometimes!

Trying to decide which way to go.


So happy with how this turned out. Its not perfect, I can see the mistakes but the overall visual makes me happy. Im going to hang it in my bedroom.
