Mod Pop Take 2, Some Updates on the Pattern and a Quilt Along too!


I've been really hard at work the past two weeks working on my second Mod Pop. 

This one was commissioned as a store sample for my LQS and she wanted it ASAP. I finished it up on Saturday and delivered it to a very pleased shop owner!

This one was made with Hope Valley by Denyse Schmidt

What I really love about this one is that the pattern isn't as noticeable, but it's still there. And the fact that it was made with a single fabric collection and still works really excites me.

I quilted it the same way I did the original version, using a darker thread so it really shows up well. And you know I couldn't leave well enough alone when it came to backing and had to do at least a little bit of piecing.

PATTERN AND SHOP UPDATE!

I have FINALLY gotten some templates in hand and have the pattern in the process of being printed. I should have it in my hands by the beginning of next week.

I have a Big Cartel shop all set up, it includes both versions of the pattern, the templates and a bundle that includes both. You don't have to join anything or give your email address away to purchase through Big Cartel, it takes you straight to Paypal to check out. The pattern will stay on Craftsy as well.

Here's the link, it will be listed on the sidebar to the right as well:

I am late in the game, but I just completed the top of my Pop Mod. Gave it to my sister for Christmas- she's going to have it quilted by a friend in her town. It's King size, so it was a big project for me. I am thrilled with the results. Check it out on my blog.
