|So flat! Very pleased with how well it has come together! This is the LynneBobSquarePants block, for those that haven't seen it before.|
Before picking up the blocks and then sewing them all together, I forgot to take a photo of the layout I had decided on. The photos don't show it, but there are one or two blocks that I wish I had rearranged! I even seriously thought about undoing a couple of rows (many many seams, ugh) to fix the issue. I talked myself out of it, and hope that the mistake is not too glaring--especially to the recipient!

I've been planning an airplane themed back for a while, but didn't know what colors to use. Naturally I wanted to use blue for a sky feel, but when I asked my brother what color he'd like it to be, he said earthy tones, relaxing colors. So that threw me off, but I finally just decided blue was the right color anyway (plus it is a relaxing color, right?). I didn't want to piece the back, except for around the airplane, so I looked into broadcloth and sheets. Today while at Walmart I came across a light blue king sized sheet, on clearance for $7! I hope it is nice enough after washing and quilting.
I've been thinking about how to quilt it, and am completely undecided still! Nothing seems right so far. Any ideas?
