Plane Dreaming

I've been working on another baby quilt recently. This one is called Plane Dreaming. It's made with only 3 different fabric, and I'm making it using the disappearing nine patch block. The colours look a bit muted... I think I feel this way because I normally like to work with brights.

Here it is pieced and quilted:


I practiced some free motion on this quilt, in a loopy loop style. Unfortunately my loops aren't too great, but like me, I suppose they'll survive, heh heh.

I have to say I love the fabric. In this picture you can see the print on the main (blue) fabric. It has little blue and pink planes flying among the clouds... so cute!

Now all I've got to do is to bind this quilt. I'm a bit stuck between 2 choices here, a navy gingham print and a sweet yellow print with little crescent moons.

Any suggestions?

Firstly, LOVE the quilt - and the little plane fabric is just perfect! DNP is great quilt block, it always comes out looking fantastic. I'm going with the yellow for the binding!
