They form part of a mini quilt, 16" x 24 " to be exact. Just the right size for premature baby Humidicrib covers for our local hospital.
The paper plane has been defined by hand stitches using two strands of DMC colour 503 ...
... the flight plan of the paper plane has been hand stitched using 3 strands of DMC colour 898.
The mini quilt was inspired by the main background fabric by Belle and Bo "My Paper Plane", purchased from Spotlight.
I have a similar themed picked out for the little girl's house.
This time she'll be hold a string a heart balloons flying high in the sky.
These hearts are so cute ... I've done two out of three so far.
You can find this FPP pattern for free in Quiet Play's Craftsy store :)
Not sure how I'm going to quilt these two mini quilts? I think some free motion loop-da-loop would look lovely - but sadly that's still beyond my skill level. So perhaps some simple straight lines will do?
I am planning on having these little babies finished next week (but don't hold me to it!) ... They will be donated as part of the 100 Quilts for Kids drive - you can find the details from the Button on my sidebar.
Linking up with all of you busy people at WIP Wednesday kindly hosted by Freshly Pieced.
