Blue Plane Wholecloth Toddler's Quilt

Just finished this 50x70" crib or toddler's quilt. Really enjoyed doing this quilt. It incorporated both my love of sewing and my creative side.

This beautiful crib or toddler bed quilt shows a fun airplane soaring to new destinations. Images are HAND QUILTED with blue thread and feature a little plane flying through clouds, surrounded by swirling winds, crosshatch diamonds, quilted squares and more clouds. Adding fun interest, the quilt has patchwork borders and double-folded dark blue binding.

Quilt pattern was NOT a pre-printed kit. Airplane image was hand drawn, crosshatch and squares were created with a ruler, the swirling wind was drawn with a quilt border stencil and the outer border's clouds were also hand drawn, all done by me.
