My niece decorated Adam's room with an airplane theme. I found this block online and planned the arrangement to emphasize the diagonals (creates movement). The plaids seemed more appropriate for a little boy rather than the usual prints. Piano keys are a great way to repeat colors and use up scraps.

I hand quilted spirals over each plane, zigzags in the border, and down the center of the sashing.

Adam' favorite part of the quilt is the flannel backing. The print included airplanes, cars, buses, and roads on which he runs his toy vehicles.
