I was hoping to find an airplane fabric for the back of the quilt. Why airplane? Airplane!, a silly movie from the 80's, is my favorite movie. If I remember correctly, Dave likes the movie, too. So the airplane is an inside joke from me to him.
I found one fabric possibility at Equilter, but I really liked the one above which I found at Ebay. The seller had 4 fat quarters available. I needed much more than that to cover the back of the quilt. Before I bid, I asked the seller if there was any writing on the selvage. I was hoping to find more of the fabric elsewhere on the internet. She said there's nothing on the selvage. After spending hours searching the Web, I gave up. I bought 2 fat quarters, cut as a half yard, from the Ebay seller, and I'll have to find some other fabric--probably a solid--to surround it. The fabric is coming from Canada, and I'm crossing my fingers that it will arrive within a week.
