This is my first year participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
|Pattern is LynneBobSquarePants by Lily's Quilts.|
I made this quilt for my older brother's birthday gift this year. I let him choose the pattern from a few I had pre-selected. I got some guidance/ideas on colors from him as well.
|The back--he loves airplanes.|
I had a hard time figuring out the right way to quilt it. I wanted the front to have different quilting in the light and dark blue squares and the back to have flowing lines. I think I managed to find a nice compromise! I free motion quilted it on my Janome MC6300 using Aurifil 2605 (medium grey).
|You can see the quilting a little better here. The airplane acted as a glorified quilt label.|
|Please excuse the dust and stray threads.|
I'm glad it went to family, I love this quilt and will enjoy seeing it every once in awhile!
