Eclipse Charity Quilt: Trip to Florida

Trip to Florida by Joyce
I wasn’t about to send you off alone. With your luck, not even the black box would survive. -Edward Cullen, Eclipse, page 88

We wanted to symbolize the trip to Florida with the airplane because, not only did Bella and Edward take a plane to Florida, they have the whole 'black box' and 'what if' note conversation after they get home. I used the same blue batik that I used for the water in the Nature block for the sky in this one.

Originally, I had used grays for the plane, but there wasn't enough contrast, so I used 3 different reds. I like it much better!

The design is from Paper Panache and was designed by Linda Worland. It is called Airplane.

Joyce, the red plane looks so fantastic and the sky fabric is awesome. This block has WOW factor, big time!

I didn't notice the different reds until now. Really nice! I love the sky fabric as well. Good job, Joyce!
