Funny because it is ironic.  =)
I think I’m going to hang it in my office.

I first saw the:

Always Plan Ahea
d

phrase online.  I think it was some graphic/typeface/font website where I found it.  It cracked me right up so, of course, I needed to make it in fabric.

Gathered the scraps and set forth to make improv letters from the Word Play Quilts book.  I seriously love those techniques and letters by Tonya Ricucci.  I think the last time I used the improv letters was for my “May The Fork Be With You” Star Wars quilt.  Loved it.

It is so funny how much planning actually did go into “not” planning ahead.  But there it is, the little “d” on the last row.  By himself.  Poor little guy.

Got everything squared up and put together.  It was small, so it really took an evening to make this up.  After all, it is only 15 letters.

My plan to quilt it was to quilt channeled lines.  I was aiming to try to quilt 1/8″ apart, but it turned out to be a bit bigger at 1/4″ apart.  Still worked for me though.  Since this piece is so small, relatively, it quilted it quickly on my home sewing machine.

Next up the binding.  I used scraps there, too.  I have loads of binding scraps mixed into my scrap bin.  Note to self: I should really pull those out.

Slight blur on that last one.  Sorry about that.

And that is my quick little “Always Plan Ahead” picture.
