Mod Stripes Quilt for Creativebug

I'm so excited to share with you my latest workshop for Creativebug, my Mod Stripes Quilt Top! This design was inspired by my Silo quilt, but it's a bit more complex and I used a much brighter color palette for this project.

The Mod Stripes Quilt is a lap sized quilt, measuring at 64" x 70", and is made using the technique of strip piecing, which is one of my favorite ways to work. It makes piecing and constructing a quilt much faster, and this project is no exception. The Mod Stripes Quilt comes together very quickly, and is a great project for a beginner quilter or sewist, and an even quicker project for someone who is more experienced.

My original design for the Mod Stripes quilt features bold bright colors (I used FreeSpirit Designer Solids in Aqua, Kiwi, and Arctic White), but I think this would look really great in a wide range of color palettes. I've got plans to make another version using a pale green, cream, and light gray for the new house. I'm thinking Chamois, Chartreuse, and Pale Gray would be fun.

So, join me over at Creativebug where I'll walk you through this entire project, step by step, and we'll make one together! We'll cover everything from cutting fabric to constructing the strips, building the quilt blocks and then sashing them. We'll also talk about constructing the backing for your quilt and finishing techniques as well. You can purchase the class for the Mod Stripes Quilt a la carte, or you can take it, and all of the other 130+ workshops that Creativebug offers, by taking advantage of their amazing subscription offer
