It's a bird! It's a plane!

After finishing Luke's quilt top, I was ready for something a little more challenging. I saw Amy's tutorial for an airplane quilt block on Badskirt and figured I'd give it a try. Here's my plane.

It was fun and definitely took me out of my comfort zone. Amy's tutorial is very clear and easy to follow. What am I going to do with it? Not sure yet. I might turn it into a pillow or frame it for Luke's room. Now my wheels are turning...I bet I could make a robot block to hang in Luke's room. (Maybe something like this?)

I'm glad to hear the tutorial worked out well! It's funny, but robots were high on my list of blocks to try soon. After the plane, I made a little sailboat.

Can't wait to see your robot!

I think a robot on a wall hanging would be cute. I'm in awe that you're ready for more challenging projects. You are fearless.

You made that already? I would think something like that would take weeks.

Cute block. It makes me want to try the tutorial. I was at Amy's blog and that is how I found yours!

oh, that plane block is so cute! I love the robot block you linked to also, I am sure if you can do a plane you can do that robot!

Your skillz are beginning to make me feel inferior.
