I finished the quilting and bond my newest plan B quilt this week. I’m calling this one Northwest Plan B. Why, you ask? One, I’m sending it to my sister in law who happens to live there. Two, The low volume background reminds me of the overcast skies that are so prevalent there. Three, The bright happy trees remind me of all the beautiful foliage that are a result of so many rainy days.
To go with this theme I decided to quilt clouds and swirling wind.
I hope it will be the perfect pick me up for my sister in law. She was recently diagnosed with cancer. So a Plan Be quilt is perfect. If you are unfamiliar with my Plan B quilts let me explain. A Plan B quilt is made from blocks inteded for other quilts. Test blocks because sometimes it’s a good idea to make sure everything fits before you commit. Orphan blocks because some blocks are so fun you get carried away. Mistake, not failures, but lessons learned. And scraps because when life falls to pieces remember there is always plan B. And life is all about how you handle plan B.
