Mod Pop ~ Christmas-style!

Christmas mod pop done!

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.... Christmas mod pop done!

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. Mod pop Christmas quilt - all done
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...

Happy Sewing!

This is beautiful! I love the colours on the front and the quilting and the back is inspired, the different colours are really fun.
