Earlier this year I gifted my parents one of my Snowy Day Quilt Samplers for their anniversary! After I gave it to them I realized it would be hard for them to share it. My Mom claimed it haha! So I decided I would make my Dad his own quilt.
Growing up my Dad used to always wear those cozy Flannel plaid shirt/coats. So I really wanted to try to design a quilt resembling plaid! Once my design was picked, I went to my trusty Kona Color Card to find the perfect colors. We live in the Pacific Northwest of Washington State. We are surrounding by oceans, lakes, rain (lots and lots of rain), evergreen trees and green grass. So I decided to go with blues and greens and a little bit of silver. It just so happens that our local sports teams fashion the same colors! Go Seahawks!

This quilt went together very quickly! The quilt is full of square and rectangles, so once your fabric is cut, it’s block making time. If you are looking for a quilt to make in a weekend, this one’s for you!
I decided to go with a straight line quilting about 1 inch apart. I like the texture it gives once the quilt is washed and dried.
You can find this quilt pattern in my Craftsy and Etsy shops!!
I can’t wait to see your version of this quilt!! On social media use the hashtags #pacificnorthwestplaidquilt or #happycloudcreations
Have a wonderful day!
