Flying Colors

Last year a good friend of mine's, Son, gave me a colored pc. of  paper that was folded up into a  paper airplane.  He asked if I could make it into a quilt. I unfolded the paper and said "Sure" this should be fun.  I put the block pattern into EQ6 (I didn't have 7 at that time) and played with the combinations a bit.  All the above and below images are from that same block. Some are larger versions of the block, while others are smaller, but most of the various changes comes just from the different color schemes.  The Green one below, is the one he decided on, without the hot pink - lol.  He said he'd like to keep it in the Ocean greens with possibly a touch of blues.  Thankfully I have lots of greens and so I should be able to start this project soon.
Would anyone be interested in doing this project along with me?  I'd so LOVE to see it done up in the different colors, and I know I would never be able to do all the possibilities of this block.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.  If there is enough interest, we might make this a quilt-along.


  1. Love that top design! lots of nice colors combos there.

  2. Thank you, There are endless possibilities with this pattern. A good way to use up scraps and fat quarters for those who are interested in participating. I could set up a flickr page for everyone to share their tops when they are done. I hope a lot of people want to join in the fun as I'd love to see the outcome of everyone's creation.

  3. I would like to have a go at this but could not start until June... see you then
