So, I posted last week about how I plan to tackle a new Christmas quilt, right?
Well, I got a touch of crafting ADD and pieced a bunch of paper-pieced gnomelings from the free Artisania pattern. And then I put them in a row. And then they became a purdy runner for my TV console! I hand quilted, for the first time ever, with some helpful advice from the #talknt folks! (Check out the CaraQuilts blog for info on that... fun chat every Tuesday!)
Yeah, yeah, I know it's August. I'm festively gifted, whatcha gonna do?
In other happy news... I decided to destash my Poseidon Kona Solids Bundle last week. Listed it on EBay on Friday, and then Leanne.... well, Leanne just HAD to post her version of Julie's Mod Pop pattern and make me fall in love with it again, so off eBay came Poseidon!
Now the question.... what focal fabric do I use for my Mod Pop? I'm feeling the bigger throw/lap quilt size, and will use Poseidon for the background like Leanne. Do I stick with white? Go daring with an orange or lime green? What about a yellow? I want contrast, for sure. I have Kona Pomegranate but it seems too flat. Need some input, y'all!
