Air travel was in its infancy in the 1930s, so quilters were inspired by airplanes. The gentle curves in this quilt are easy to achieve using the starch-applique method. Each block uses a different print, but for continuity the designer made repeated use of three green prints.
Finished quilt: 54½" x 63½"
Finished block: 9½" x 9½"
