More Wine Please

I’m finished the Mod Pop top and I’ve renamed it More Wine Please.  I love it.  I’ve not worked with a colour palette like this before, with plums and pinks and burgundies, but they work together so nicely.

Mod Pop/More Wine Please: all done!

I went through the Flickr pool for the QAL to try and come up with an idea for how to quilt it. I ended up stippling all the darker areas and leaving the light section completely unquilted. I had originally planned to do echo quilting along the light curves, but when I was done the stippling, I decided that I liked it just the way it was.

And I finished it well before the Feb. 17 QAL deadline! I took one last picture in the crutch of my elm tree. The tree is already starting to bud a little bit, and it’s only mid-February. Unbelievable! The grass is also getting a slight hint of green. I hope it survives the blast of winter that we always inevitably get in late February/early March around here. We always seem to get the worst snowstorms that time of year.

Since it’s Wednesday, I’m linking up to the Needle and Thread Network.  Even though this is no longer in progress and is now totally done.  Yay!

  1. I love it !! Great choice of colors! I bet your neighbours were wondering what you were doing hanging your quilt on a tree and taking numerous pictures of it! What we bloggers do for a good picture! 😉

  2. Congratulations! What a stunning and mod piece of work. LOVE IT!! My adult daughter thinks quilts look too “country”, vs modern; this would prove her wrong. Lovely.

  4. It is beautiful! You did such an excellent job on the curves and the quilting. I especially love the colours of your quilt, the name is just perfect – it does remind me of the best red wine.
