Finished up my Mod Pop quilt and my first ever Christmas quilt. I am so happy with the results and just in time for the holidays!
I used some extra blocks on the back and split the colors of the back piece - I quite like this back, maybe even a little more than the front. Hmmm....
Quilting was tough on this one. I had a hard time deciding just what to do. In the end, I opted for parallel line quilting mirroring the edge of the motif. Then I used some pebbles inside the circles and basic stippling in the other areas.
Pattern details can be found in this post.
This quilt is made almost entirely of Aneela Hoey's Cherry Christmas line along with some of her earlier lines and a few random bits of fabric to round out the color scheme. It's definitely got a red/aqua thing going on but this is a palette that works really well in my home at Christmas time. Ok this post is a short one - I've got lots more Christmas prep to do and time is running out...
