Airplane Baby Quilt – Cut and Attempted Sewing

I’m done talking to the seam ripper right now. I’ve ripped out the first seam three times now. ARGH! This would be one of those times I wish I knew what I was doing!

Today I laid out the pattern pieces for the Air Force fabric and cut it. Only one of each, because if I’m wrong, I don’t want to waste too much fabric. And I’m usually wrong. I am rather proud of myself – the tail triangle fit perfectly on the AF logo, so each tail will boast the proper insignia.

Then I spent some time trying to sew the first side of blue sky to the AF plane, and I cannot for the life of me get it to line up. Matching it end to end didn’t work. Pinning it at the seam and flipping it where it looked right didn’t work. Twice. Silly me for thinking this was easy! I don’t think I’m trying again until we get back from our weekend trip. So any suggestions…?

Oh, and I sure hope the poor baby isn’t allergic to cats. (Not that there’s not cat hair EVERYWHERE. I miss the Ionic Breezes.)
