Look at all the Mod Pops

Mod Pop - detail

Mod Pop is one of my favourite patterns. It was written by my friend Julie who blogs at Distant Pickles. There are links on her blog here if you want to buy the pattern and/or handy acrylic templates.

I started the Mod Pop QAL after pattern testing for Julie and making Whitewater, which is a baby size Mod Pop and is off living with a beautiful new baby. I wanted to make a king size Mod Pop and needed some friends to keep me going. Today we get to celebrate all the finished Mod Pop quilts from the QAL. The picture is above the information about the quilt and quilter.


This is the stunning very last finish. Ann, who blogs at Bright Side of Balance spent yesterday hand stitching the binding.

Mod Pop QAL

Jennifer from Knotted Thread finished this one which reminds me of oranges on a sunny blue sky day.

Mod Pop/More Wine Please: all done!

Shena who blogs at Apple Pie Patchwork named her luscious quilt More Wine Please.


This excellent Mod Pop was made by Diane from Quiltova and lives on her guest bed.

Mod Pop Ombre

Terri, who blogs at Stuff and Things made this amazing ombre Mod Pop.

FINISH: Mod Pop Quilt - Final location

This is Alex's version of Mod Pop. She also used an ombre approach which creates a stunning effect in the middle. Alex blogs at She Creates an Outlet.

And there again is my king size Mod Pop - still without a name but I am working on that, thank you all for the great ideas.

There are still a bunch of people who are trailing along on the QAL and you can check out their progress so far in the Mod Pop QAL flickr group here. There are also links to help for sewing curves there and other tips on completing this quilt. Oh and the link to my post with the video about how to sew curves without pins is here.

The last prize in the QAL, for finishing by last night, is a $30.00 gift certificate to shop at Dragonfly Fabrics, which is Jennifer's lovely shop.

And the winner is Jennifer from Knotted Threads!

she can quilt

Thank you to everyone who quilted along with me and to all our lovely sponsors, Pink Castle Fabrics, Fluffy Sheep Quilting and Dragonfly Fabrics.  

I am also setting up a linky so everyone who finishes a Mod Pop in the QAL or while trailing along, can link up their Ta Da blog post or a fickr picture so that they will all be handy whenever I  or you want to look for inspiration. This link will be open for another 6 months so that should give those of you on the seriously laid back time line a bit more time to join in.

I am enjoying my long weekend, I hope you are too.
