My date with a MOD

Tonight I had a date with a 'mod'... 

But you are a married woman I hear you say!!

Not to worry - it was with my Mod Sampler quilt [Oh Fransson free pattern].  I started this quilt in January and it is number one on my to-do list for Quilter in the Gap's 3rd Quarter Finish A Long, Lazy Bums UFO group and for the 100 Day Hustle... 


Tonight the 'mod' was ironed, a few seams were fixed and I de-threaded the back for an hour or so.


Then I got busy making the back.  Using some fun bright green Happy Drawing squiggles as my feature fabric, I added three of the spare blocks that didn't make it onto the front and I now have a set of floating squares in squares on the green surrounded by crisp white.  I will have to add more white along the two sides so it is big enough to baste and quilt - but I am slowly but surely getting there!

Terrible terrible terrible indoor photos - sorry! 
Plus it looks as though the lens is dirty too. 


Will this quilt be done for the end of the month?  I still have to complete the back, sandwich, baste, quilt [any suggesions?], decide on and make the binding then hand stitch it on, attach the label, and wash, dry and photograph it. 

Hmmm.... I hope so :)

Linking with the wonderful Fabric Tuesday and WiP Wednesday

This is so bright and cheery Amy. And the back is great! You get bonus points for quilting it yourself - mine is going to the long armer.
