The center needed a special touch, so we used the cricut to cut out a horse. It was appliqued to a brown block and framed with the checker board pieces. The brown fabric does have some texture to it, it's called mirage. But from a distance it looks solid so I quilted the straight lines on it to make it look like wooden slats. The criss cross on the checkerboard adds a nice touch to the outside frame.

I found this cool airplane fabric while shopping with a friend one day! I wanted to have large pieces of it on the quilt, but at the same time, I wanted something interesting to go with it. So I made this block that reminds me of a propeller. (It also looks like X's and O's now that I see the picture of it!)
Close up of the blocks. I tried a large meander on it and my husband says that is looks like the streamers that follow an airplane in the air or perhaps the water vapor trail. I have several more quilts lined up for the Big Lady and with the kids at camp this week, I should be very productive!
