Fly High baby quilt

My plan is to use up as many children's fabrics as I can from my stash, as well as scraps, 
by creating a set of baby quilts for the neo-natal unit & Ronald McDonald House 
at Southland Hospital in Invercargill.

I've started with this one, using up a flannel jellyroll that I picked up 
from Spotlight at the end of last year.

I created rail-fence blocks then twisted and turned them to create the layout.
I used some extra strips to bulk up the sides, and used up some leftover blocks to lengthen it as well.

It measures 27" x 31" and has a plain flannel backing.

You can see that I kept with the aeronautical theme by quilting clouds along horizontal lines.

The backing is just a plain pale blue flannel, with some leftover blocks as a small feature panel.


  1. Super cute, love the cloud quilting!

  2. Such a cheerful donation quilt. Congratulations on your beautiful finish and thanks for participating in Finish-A-Long on behalf of the 2018 FAL hosts.
