My son Eamon needed a quilt for his bed since his mean mother would not let him have the hand pieced Mariner's Compass quilt. So, I decided that since I worked for the airlines at the time and he had been in many airplanes, that I would make him an airplane quilt. It would not be right to just make him the quilt, but his stuffed Racoon needed one to match. These quilts were made 20 years ago and were well loved at the time. They are machine pieced and hand quilted and embroidered.
