Mod Sampler Quilt


I just put the finishing touches on my Mod Sampler Quilt quilt-along pattern by Oh Fransson! I really like the way its turned out.


The blocks on the front and back are pieced using 12 different fat quarters from Amy Butler's Love fabric line. The sashing is a Kona solid, I believe in Snow? (basically one shade off of white)


The back is peiced with a blue swirly pattern (I forget who it was made by) and the bottom is Kona Grass. I really like the way the back came out! I had a few little puckers, but I think it was from moving the quilt around so much trying to rip out the first attempt at quilting that I didn't like. Again, after obsessing about and contemplating ripping out portions of the quilting AGAIN, I relented and decided I am "OK" with it.


The finished size is 52 inches x 62 inches, a perfect "cuddle up the on couch" size!


This quilt will be going to my mom as a Christmas gift...I think I need to roll it up and hide it from myself so I'm not tempted to either use it myself or give it to her early!

I'll be posting this week to Lit and Laundry's Finished for Friday and to AmyLouWho's Sew and Tell.

As for whats next...I think I'm going to start on one of the two baby quilts that needs to be made for friends of ours who are having babies. Neither couple is finding out what they are having, so gender neutral it is! Here's a sneak peak:

  1. Oh, wow ! You did a wonderful job......I love it when I have a hard time liking the 'front' better than the 'back' !
    Yes.......do yourself a favor and put the quilts up where you forget about them yourself.......maybe WITH your Christmas decorations. Don't tell a soul. Then, just think how popular and tickled you're going to be around the Christmas family gathering !

    And, oh boy, I could have some fun with that latest stack of fabrics, too..........I know this is going to be another gorgeous gift !
