Florabunda Finish: A Plan B Life

I was supposed to go to New York City this week, but some weird side effects from one of my medications kept me home instead.  I wanted to turn that negative into a positive, so I spent my extra time at home finishing the quilting and binding on my Florabunda A La Mode quilt.

My new 2" Ribbon Candy Stencil is a perfect fit for this quilt.


I threaded my Handi Quilter Stitch 710 machine with FabuLux First Love thread and set to work.


 I love the high contrast between the black background and Melanie Testa's Florabunda fabrics.

If you look closer, though, you'll find that there's some color hiding in the plain black fabric:


I was surprised when I discovered that this particular blend of teal, hot pink, and royal purple thread only shows up on black when you look closely.  Who knew?

Now we both do.

This wasn't a bad Plan B for a sick day.

Do you try to redeem lost days?  As quilters, quilting can fill up the vacant spaces quite nicely!

Love the colors and the thread was just perfect! I am chasing a squirrel this week and started my second A La Mode quilt. I had won some Windham fabrci called "Tall Ships" and have been in a quandary since January 2017 as to how to make it. After I made my first A La Mode quilt, I knew how I needed to make this one! This time I will take pictures before I give it away!
