This Airplanes with Eagles quilt pattern was created in 1929 to commemorate Charles Lindberg's 1927 transatlantic flight in The Spirit of St. Louis from Long Island to France. Lindberg flew solo in 33 1/2 hours and became known as The Lone Eagle. The flight made Lindberg an American hero. This quilt alternates pieced airplanes with quilted eagles. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 68" x 88".
