Sewing mod

A new quilt has begun...
I did a little sewing over the weekend - sewing just for me which rarely happens around here it seems.  I felt like getting into the Christmas spirit so I decided to make a Mod Pop quilt in Christmas colors.  Well, my xmas colors which are not traditional by any means.  The palette I'm into lately is bright cherry red and aqua with lime green.  A very modern palette which fits well into our house.  I had been wanting to make this quilt pattern, so I used Christmas as an excuse to make one. 

 The Mod pop quilt is aptly named - very mod, which also happens to be very trendy right now.  I love when the quilting world gets updated like this - it's the thing i love most about the Modern Quilting movement.

Here is my progress so far.
If this quilt design is up your alley, then you might want to know that there is a whole Flickr group dedicated to sewing this quilt.  You can come and quilt along with us.

And as for Modern Quilting - I would like to announce the formation of the Corvallis Modern Quilt Guild.  Our next meeting is Dec 6th. Please follow this link to our Facebook page for all the details if you're interested in joining us.

Corvallis Modern Quilt Guild
Happy Sewing!
