Fly by the Line

An airplane print and a diagonal stripe in an unexpected color palette results in a vibrant baby quilt. Straight line quilting and repeating the stripe in the binding provide fun finishing touches. Fabrics are from the Oh Boy! collection by Lori Whitlock for Riley Blake DesignsQuilting designs are courtesy of Handi Quilter; machine-quilted by Vicki Hoth.

Choose Fabrics

The stripe used in the featured quilt is printed on the diagonal. If you are not using a diagonal stripe yet want the same look, you need to cut all the pieces listed in the cutting instructions on the bias. Be careful not to stretch pieces when assembling the quilt, as the outside quilt edges will be on the bias.
