Average review
I'm making this quilt for my first grandson due in August (my son is an Army helicopter pilot). I'm going to learn the foundation paper piecing for this quilt. So excited!!! Well, I made the quilt...turns out I got (PDF) an older edition of it..make sure you get the corrected newer version. I would also suggest that you be an expert at foundation paper piecing. I wasn't and it made figuring out what size to cut the pieces difficult. I ended up having to buy a yard more of the baby blue and the white solids. I screwed up so many times I think I'm lucky it looks half decent. Lol
