It's a Mod, Mod, World...

So at the last meeting of the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild, we were blessed with a tutorial by Cola on how to do the Mod Mosaic Pillows that she had made. While her efforts were great in helping us get started, I had a bit of a creative meltdown from the beginning. I am so used to following a pattern or sticking to exact measurements, that I found it difficult just to 'let go' and do something without a plan per se. Cola helped me gather some fabics, since I had not come prepared with scraps for the project, and here are the selections we came up with.
Some of them are from Michael Miller's Sweet Meadow collection and I believe the others are from Poppy Parade. It started out pretty alright, but I have decided to leave it for now until I at least finish a few more sections of my Single Girl Quilt. Here is what I have so far, and I am really working hard on just 'going with the flow' and not being too concerned about being meticulous with my cutting and measuring.
For further ideas you can check out the Mod Mosaic on Flickr. My husband is just wondering when I will actually FINISH one project. Back to sewing.


  1. Those colors are really going to look amazing together. You can do it! And it's all thanks to Elizabeth Hartman @ Oh, Fransson!'s tutorial - she has awesome stuff!!

    I need to actually finish something too. I'm usually on one project at a time and all of a sudden I have 4 with a 5th in planning and tons of others in my head.

  2. Just tell him its not about the finishing... I did finish a few projects to day, though. It was a good feeling, but not as good as starting a new project!
