A quick commercial…I love to listen to books while I free motion quilt! Have any of you read Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens? I’m really enjoying it!
How to Quilt a Biplane Motif
Begin by stitching a sideways figure 8.
Stitch a triangle with rounded edges. (Stitch the triangle counter-clockwise).
Then closely echo stitch the left side of the triangle.
Stitch a counter clockwise hotdog bun shape.
Add a diagonal line across the “hot dog bun”, then closely echo stitch the right side.
Next, stitch across the wing–creating an “X”.
Add a rectangle, stitched perpendicular to the hot dog bun wing. Closely echo stitch the left side.
Stitch a vertical line within the rectangle and closely echo stitch back out.
Add an oval on the tail and stitch a loopy line to begin the next motif in the design.
The Airplane Border
Once you know how to quilt a biplane, add the airplane motif to create more interest.
For a great border design, stitch the Airplane Motif along the horizontal borders and the Biplane along the vertical borders.
