Mod Pop Tops

Mod Pop tops complete

Have a look at the Mod Pop tops so far. They are each so lovely and each so different. There is one more completed top that will not load in my mosiac - it is here and it is also beautiful. It is so fun to see how Julie's Mod Pop pattern works so well with such different fabric choices and in different sizes.

I have to confess that the last one in the mosaic is my huge queen size mod pop which is not complete, but close. The columns are not sewn together and the last edge strips - which are one square wide - are not made yet. I plan to finish it off this weekend because I am keen to start quilting it.

Mermaid Splash- bundle from Fluffy Sheep Quilting 

To encourage those of us quilting along, especially those who were hoping to gift their Mod Pop quilts in this holiday season, to get moving, Cindy from Fluffy Sheep Quilting sponsored that beautiful Mermaid Splash bundle as a prize for those who were finished their tops by last Sunday night. Thank you Cindy for supporting our QAL.
As you can see, the winner is Debbie from A Quilter's Table. Debbie not only finished her top last week, she also finished her whole quilt too. You can read her Ta Da post here, which includes pictures from a great photo shoot.

Mod Pop - so far 

The Mod Pop QAL will continue, with some people finishing quickly for the holidays and the rest working at a more leisurely pace. As my huge quilt - yes I just could not resist showing you the whole picture of it so far - is for me, there is no rush to be done this month and it might get pushed aside from time to time while I try to manage all my holiday obligations and have fun along the way - I really do love this time of year. I am both excited to start quilting it and daunted at its size, so I expect it might take me a while to finish, we shall see.

If you are looking for my Sew Mama Sew Bella give away, it is here. I have been reading blogs and entering giveaways all week, there are sure a lot of generous quilters - you have until Friday dinner time to enter all the different draws, good luck!

Best,

Leanne

  19. so bummed I couldn't be a part of this QAL. I have my fabrics set aside and so excited to start this project, but had too many high priority gifts to finish. Plan on this being a February project, and I can't wait to start! Congrats to all who participated- they are all beautiful.
