Sometimes I even work on a quilt

Mod Pop in progress

There is my large Mod Pop so far. I have at least two more chains of the aqua to make. The question I am contemplating is: do I also add one more block to the bottom of each chain, for a full queen size quilt.

Mod Pop - waiting to become curved units

This weekend I did some cutting. I cannot stand to cut all the pieces for a whole quilt at once, so I cut some, sew some.

Mod Pop - some curves sewn

I chain pieced the curved units. It took just about one hour to sew enough curved units for 7 blocks.

Mod Pop - curves all pressed and trimmed

Here are the units, pressed and trimmed.

There it is right side up. I am very excited at how this crazy colour scheme is coming together. I have one more block done and tonight I have to do more cutting before I can piece more blocks.

We are going to have another prize in the Mod Pop QAL for one of the people who get their the tops done for December 2. Despite the leisurely pace of the QAL, some people want to give their quilt as a holiday present so I am stepping up the pace some. Since my quilt is for me, I am just hoping to be done in time for holiday moving watching.

I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I am happy to be working a quilt for a change, it has been a long while, what with bags and EPP and swaps and bees and such.
