wee little airplane quilt

Gasp, a boy project! I had so much fun making this little quilt for a friend’s son. She requested airplane fabric, so I searched around and found this on Etsy. I just love the vintage vibe, and little labels for all the different airplanes! If we ever have a boy, I want to make him something out of this fabric. Hmm should have bought extra. ( It looks like she’s out)

 I backed it in some green cross hatch fabric from the Early Bird line by Cosmo Cricket, and added a (oops, slightly crooked) monogram from some Amy Butler dot fabric. (it adds to the handmade charm, right?)

My favorite little detail is how I quilted it-with little clouds!  You can see the planes a bit closer in this picture too, they are so cute!
