first mod pop block

my plan for the weekend was to get a start on the totally groovy and the mod pop quilt-along quilts, but of course, the best laid plans always change !

I did manage to get a block of the mod pop quilt cut out and I finished sewing it up last night - I'm using pezzy mono pink and kona azalea :)

the curves were a little less stressful to do than the first ones for the totally groovy quilt and craftsy blocks and hopefully they'll improve as I do more !

I've decided to take a leaf from the finish-along girls who link up over at Quilter in the Gap and do a make list so that I get the things I need to done and don't start anything else !

so here goes - my list of things to be done between now and early December - did I mention I'll be cruising the South Pacific in December - well in 1 month, 30 days, and 16 hours according to the cruise countdown widget at the bottom of the page :)
  1. star of africa swap blocks - my plan is to make two blocks each weekend until I'm up to date !
  2. pram/capsule cover for baby lucy - hopefully I'll get this done soon
  3. hourglass quilt for baby lucy - maybe a christmas present!
  4. design camp 2 swap blocks - I've got two overdue blocks with another due this month - I hope to get these done during the week
  5. long distance quilting bee swap blocks - september and october blocks plus the march block which I've now misplaced but I'm going to find and get it finished - I'm hoping to get these done during the week as well
  6. modern she made swap - this needs to be sent by mid november
  7. totally groovy quilt - top finished
  8. mod pop quilt - top finished
  9. craftsy block of the month - october blocks done and top finished
  10. blogger's block of the month - top finished
and in between I hope to get more hexies done for the hexy mf quilt-along and then there's the spinning stars quilt-along that I need to start - maybe that will be my first January project !


  1. Love the pezzy print - good luck with your list.

  2. I love your Mod Pop block, this is going to be such a great quilt. It is a good list and a cruise in the South Pacific sounds like a wonderful end to the year.

  3. I love your Pezzy Pop block - it's going to be a stunning quilt! Your list is almost as long as my arm - good luck!!

  4. Loving the block, very eye catching!
    Good luck with the list. =D

  5. The block looks great, and the cruise sounds fab, lots of hand sewing projects needed!

  6. I can wait for my block till after the cruise as long as you start speaking to me again! Hehe! Great block - love those colours!
