Plan C - "C The Tulips"

"C The Tulips"

This wall hanging is finally complete. I'm not sure if I want to say how long ago I started it, but let's say it has been a few years. It is the Plan C pattern from Carrie Nelson. Here is what I said about it when I started

"I was not happy with my original design, and so I found a different one that used smaller 4 patches. Part of my problem was that I had bought charm packs, and the edges were pinked and the squares were smaller than 5 inches, which made them too small for some of the patterns I was looking at. Finally I decided on a third pattern, ironically Plan C by Carrie Nelson from her Schnibbles Times Two book. It calls for even smaller 4 patches, so everything is much better now. The original idea was to make a lap quilt for myself, but now I like the idea much better of making it into a wall quilt." So it really is, a Plan C quilt.

I am happy that it is done, and will get to hang it up maybe in the winter time to remind me about the beautiful spring to come.
