Another Finish – Mod Style

I am happy to report that I finished another quilt! Yippee (jumping up and down).

You may recall I made this quilt as part of a quilt-along last summer. I used Mod Girls fabrics by the fabulous Jennifer Paganelli, creator of Sis Boom fabrics. I love how colorful the simple rail fence blocks look with these colorful fabrics.

Finished Mod Girls Quilt

I spent so many hours last weekend doing free-motion all over this gem. I know, it doesn’t sound like a fun way to spend a weekend if you’re not into sewing. A mix of John Mayer’s songs proved to be a great playlist to listen to over and over while I quilted the day away. I was so relieved to have a full weekend to spend finishing my unfinished quilt projects.

The quilting went pretty well for me, which was a relief since this was the first large quilt I did free-motion quilting all over. It measures 58 inches wide by 78 inches tall. I think I only crossed lines once or twice, and my stitches weren’t always perfectly even, but I am very happy with how it turned out.

Backing of Mod Girls Quilt

I pieced the backing with a pink stripe through the middle, and then used the scraps I trimmed off the backing to piece together the binding, which worked out quite well.

Since I have fabric scraps left over from this project, I might have to make another one of those string-pieced pillows to match this quilt! I am excited to use this one, especially during this time of year when I’m craving color and looking forward to signs of life in our gardens.

  1. Keep it up girl!! I really like the colors also. Bright and Cheery. I think it is great you decided to quilt it yourself also. I have been working on my Be Atitudes quilt that I started oh so long ago. I am working on the hand work now then to back, batt and quilt and I think I’m going to try and quilt it myself also. I would like to get several UFO’s done.

  2. It’s beautiful! I bet you’re so happy to get this finished. Don’t fret over your stitches being even. YOU are the only person who would ever notice or care!!

  3. Oh I love this. It makes me think of spring with the cheery colors. I should have gotten more Mod Girls when I had the chance. Luckily Jennifer is coming out with some new fabric to stock up on soon. 🙂

  4. Love all that Jennifer Paganelli fabric!! Well done Terri! its’ lovely! the back is fun too! looks to me like your having some fun over there in WISC!
