Easy Paper Airplanes Quilt Pattern

#Affiliate - This article and video share this month's Quilty Box, a subscription box of quilting gear you can receive every month. Click Here to learn more about Quilty Box.

This past week I received my Quilty Box, filled with awesome quilting supplies selected by Heather Gavins, from Heather designed a fun line of fabric called Paper Obsessed and included several fat quarters in the box for us to play with. I was inspired by the paper themed fabric to do a bit of paper piecing and created the Paper Airplanes quilt, a really easy paper piecing project you can learn how to make in this video:

Just like last month I've published this free quilt pattern in an easy-to-print PDF you can download, print, and share to your heart's content! This is a paper pieced quilt pattern so make sure to print the pages full size with no scaling or shrinking so the paper patterns are the correct size.

For my first run with the blocks to test the pattern, I used Island Batik fabrics that really looked great. I'm honestly tempted to piece another quilt top using Island Batik Sunset, Black, and Blurple because the colors looked so pretty.

Of course, with this much background space around the airplane blocks, the biggest question is going to be - How do we quilt it? Make sure to check back next week when I share tips on picking designs for this quilt!

Let's go quilt!
