Casey plays with perspective to create really lovely and dynamic quilt designs. I had the pleasure of meeting Casey at quilt market this year, and she is such a sweetheart with a strong passion and drive for this craft. I love the illusion and depth she creates with the projects in her book: each is lovelier than the last! I especially love how she hand embroiders around a lot of the raw edges.
When Casey asked me to be apart of her blog tour, she allowed me to choose which project to make. This was a tough choice, but Flight Plan ultimately won my heart.
I love everything about it, from the curvy, billowing clouds, to the quilting. I loved the color scheme so much that I couldn’t stray too far from the colors she chose. I did add a scrappy sky, just to see the effect.
It is teeny tiny. It is 25% of the pattern size– so around 7.5″ x 10″. The planes are itty bitty and pretty sweet.
Now it’s giveaway time! Casey is giving away a copy of her wonderful book! Just leave a comment about your thoughts/experience with applique. Is it a scary word? Do you love it? Hate it? Eager to try it out?
