It's that time again!
When the Blogger's Quilt Festival comes around, I like to try to pick a quilt to show off that means something to me. Well, I guess they all mean something, but some of them are just a bit more special than others, you now?
This time around I'd like to introduce you to Mod Pop, my very first pattern quilt. My regular readers have seen this quilt over and over again, and I apologize for shoving it down your throats yet again. I'm just so darn proud of it!
I had a lot of fun drawing this one up and then planning the fabrics for it. Bree was a huge help in fabric selection. I think it took longer to pick fabrics for it then it did to draw and then sew it! I really love blues and greens and that splash of orange really made it pop for me.
I dug through my solids stash to find all the blues, greens and oranges that I had and then pieced the backing together, also throwing in a few scraps from the front. It was like putting together a puzzle and a lot of fun!
I did the quilting myself, on my home machine. I started by echoing the curves of the "beads". Then I quilted a spiral inside of each one. You can see the quilting better in this shot.
Here are the quilt stats for the festival:

There is a quilt along going on right now using the pattern. You should go check out the Flickr group to see all of the different variations on the pattern. They all look so great!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you love Mod Pop as much as I do. Enjoy the festival!!
