Two years ago I took a “plunk and play” class with Sue Patten and had a ball.   I came home loaded the frame and made my own plunk and play wall hanging (pictured below).  After posting it to Facebook, I received an order to make 5 plunk and play throw quilts for gifts.

It was so much fun to take a blank piece of fabric and just draw!   The backs are a light fleece that shows the quilting well and makes these quilts very cozy.  I used stencils on quilt 1, edge to edge on quilt 4 , templates on quilt 3, rulers on quilt 2, and free motion feathers on quilt 5.  I also challenged myself to use a different background fill on each quilt.  I also used a different variegated thread on each one so every quilt would be truly unique.

The customer said it was easy to choose the perfect quilt for each of her kids.  The son received the one with out any pink or red in the thread.  The feather quilt went to the daughter that had to have symmetry, while the other daughter had to have the “more flamboyant” quilt.  The third daughter received the zig zag feather quilt because of the angles and geometric shapes.  And the last peach colored quilt went to her precious grand daughter.
