Aviation Quilt: Over and Under

Over and Under

24 x 18

cotton fabric, cotton thread

Machine and hand sewn, hand appliqued, and machine quilted

This quilt depicts the wooden structure from the wing of the Bleriot XI airplane. I was drawn to the repetitive patterns and graceful lines.

I made lines using a method for making bias stems for floral applique. I also used flanges and reverse applique. I hand appliqued most of this structure. Here is an in-progress photo that shows how it’s constructed.

The binding is made from an original feedsack fabric.

I’ll be highlighting one of my aviation quilts each day for the month of April.

All quilts are for sale. Contact me for sales information.

If you can’t attend my exhibition in person, I do have catalogs for sale on amazon.
