Aviation Inspired Baby Quilt

Hello friends! Just wanted to drop in and share my latest finished project. :)

Some friends of ours are having a baby and they both happen to be pilots, so when I stumbled across this pattern called "In Formation" using "flying geese" blocks, I just knew it was the one I had to make. I used leftover fabric from my sister's wedding quilt (recognize those colors?), and used some fat quarters to make a scrappy backing. I took some pictures in our beautiful, blooming, GREEN front yard. Enjoy!

This picture cracks me up because it looks like Wes could be naked underneath. Haha. ;)
Quilting detail. I like how it looks like swirling air and clouds.
Scrappy backing!
I love this fabric that gives step-by-step directions on how to make a paper airplane. How perfect is that?
And I've been dying to use this "mice in race cars" fabric ever since I bought it way back when, so a baby boy's quilt seemed like the perfect opportunity.
 Our friends should be receiving this quilt any day now. I can't wait to hear what they think!


  1. It is really lovely - the colours are so nice and calming, and the quilting is awesome. I love that paper plane fabric too!

  2. Superb fabric choices; it's really cute and looks so cuddly. The mice in race cars fabric is absolutely adorable.

  3. I love flying geese and this made a great baby quilt and the little cars and mice perfect!

  4. This is such a gorgeous baby quilt, Jessie. Love the colour scheme and the flying geese design. Your friends and their little one will be so pleased!
