Mod Sampler Quilt



I finished up my Mod Sampler Quilt last night. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you step away from the computer and actually get to work (thanks, Carissa!).









The finished size is about 52" x 60", although I haven't measured since I completed it. This was my first time doing a pattern on the backing of a quilt and I love how it turned out.

I'm also joining Jacquie's Spring to Finish challenge this month. At the time I signed up for the challenge, I had 6 WIPs to finish this month. Since then, I've finished up the Mod Sampler Quilt and Lynn's block for Common Threads. Now I've got two knitting projects and two more quilts to finish up before the end of April. I love crossing things off my never-ending crafting to do list. Wish me luck!

  1. This is so pretty! I also love the backing colours. I saw this tutorial/quilt along as well, and decided not to do one. And then, after seeing so many beautiful outcomes, it's on my list of to do's!
    Great work!

  4. I love it! Another great quilt. Congrats on another one off the list. I wanted to join the Spring to Finish but I know I won't get much done this month. We finally made it to North Carolina with all our stuff, and now our apt is full of boxes. Seriously... FULL! So I have been working on that and everything else. Hopefully I will be back to crafting soon. I did manage to finish one more dish cloth so that should count for something right? I can't wait to see what knitting projects you have in the works.

  5. Your quilt turned out fantastic! I'm ready to find some time to jump back into quilting for fun -- lately I'm stuck sewing up reversible superhero capes for all of the little boys I know. Everyone and their dog is receiving a superhero cape from us this year, haha.

  11. I think it's fantastic! I had such high hopes for mine but as I started piecing the blocks it became obvious that I had a cutting mistake somewhere and I got discouraged and never went back. Seeing yours all done and lovely is making me want to get back to it. Thanks.

  12. I adore the back as much as the front. It looks so great.
    I am really thinking of making a doll quilt to ease myself back into making a quilt. I figure I should practice while waiting for the last quilt block for Melody's V-day quilt to arrive. Now, if I could only stop knitting and crocheting. Those projects are so portable.

  17. Wow, this is gorgeous - I wish I had the patience for quilting. I love the finished product, but the making just kills me!!! Also, just want to let you know I have mentioned this site on my blog, and used a picture of one of your quilts (which I've credited you with, and linked back here). Hope that's all ok. If not, please let me know and I'll rectify immediately. Cheers, Bec :)

  22. Great job on the back! I will be attempting something like that on the back of the quilt that I am currently working on. I'm to the point now where I just want to get it finished!
