March Free Pattern download Available now!

So I have some last minute tweeks to the pattern instructions I need to do, which I will get posted either later this evening or in the morning.  In the meantime, here's some pics to get you started.  Our apologies. Apparently deadlines don't matter to viruses and illness! Mom has been out of commission for several days this month, putting us just a bit behind, but she's all better now and back to work!

May I introduce to you, Flyboy Jacob! The project is no longer available for free download but will be available soon for purchase. 













Jacob is designed to be a center panel for a wallhanging or could be easily adapted into a crib size quilt. The embroidery section of our sample is stitched up at a finished size of 12"high x 16" wide, and appliqued onto a background of clouds, cut to 14 1/2" x 18 1/2".  There are 3 borders attached (Hope y'all like flying geese!) and will finish out at a size of 32"x36".  Since I'm married to an Airman, I'm particularly fond of this little one, named for my youngest son, who loves Airplanes!  Isn't he adorable??

Oh Jenn, I love it! I will make this in anticipation of a grandson in the future, in honor of my Dad, who flew a Cessna 4 seater for a while. Can you share what the little airplane and the cloud fabric are? I've got to find that, they are perfect for this! Thank you so much for your designs.

I will have to go to the quilt store to check on what cloud fabric I used. The airplane fabric for the borders is : Nanette Hilton for Northcott Silk
High Flyin #3666 from the Up, Up and Away collection. The shop I got it from had it in the kids fabrics. It may have been around a while as I got the last 3 yds on bolt. Hope this helps. Pat
