Poppin' Along

Do not for a second think I forgot about Mod Pop.  I am slowly stitching along and now have 8 blocks finished!  I realize there are only 3 here...it's just that it is raining outside and this is all of the floor space I have to shoot the photo!  Stinkin' winter.


If you remember, initially I cut enough to make a baby quilt to "test" the technique before committing to a twin. I think I feel confident enough with piecing curves now.  Do not get me wrong - I unpick 1 block for every 3 or 4 I make.  Still, I get a little better each day.

I also wanted be sure I was happy with the color scheme.  What do we think now, Helen?  Are we happy?   Do I need more or less of any color?

It was slow going, but in the end I am so very happy I took on this curvy challenge.  Thank you, Leanne, for giving me a nudge and for your continual encouragement!  I just might have this done in time for Christmas!

They do look great but unless something major happens my Mod Pop is going to have to wait until after Christmas. I have some gifts to make.

This is looking good. You're way ahead of me, but it is comforting to know I'm not the only one still unpicking them!

It's FABULOUS!!! I love the balance of colours you've got so far - those lovely blues work really well with (and lift) the darker shades...perfection!!!
Does this mean you're definitely making the twin size? *excited*

They look so pretty lined up. I think a whole quilt of this will be so lovely.
