Mod Times Quilt Along

So I decided to take the plunge a few weeks back and participate in a quilt-along... only problem was the quilt along was already finished.. whoops!

I fell in love with this quilt a looooong time ago.

I also had purchased some of the DS fabric when it was first available through an awesome sale at Joann's. I loved the initial picture posted with the quilt along so I knew I would have to use that in my quilt as well.

Here's what I came up with...

Along with the DS for the center blocks, I outlined them in Kona gray and used Kona snow for the white. The back is just something I picked up in my travels. It was a no name, nothing special but because of the blues I had to have it.

 guess what.. it matches, perfectly!
The contrast between dark and light picks up all the blue shades on the front

Here's a closeup..


As you can see I just did a simple straight quilting, because i'm still adjusting to this before I jump into the world of free motion quilting (i'm terrified).

Alright, one more picture with my FABULOUS backdrop.. totally had to take advantage when I was there!!

sigh.. just another reminder that summer has reached a close.. its bittersweet for sure

Till next time :)
