Mod Sampler Quilt: Updated

I finished my first quilt ever for Oh Fransson’s quilt along!  This was so much fun to make, and I love how it turned out!

Update:

I’ve decided to add this quilt to Park City Girl’s Quilt Festival!  What a great idea!  So, in light of that, I’m updating this post by adding the “story” of this quilt.

I think that there will always be something special about one’s first quilt.   The Mod Sampler was my first quilt.  I have been inspired by quilting for awhile now, whether it was living vicariously through blogs and magazines or admiring my friend’s lovely creations, I knew that there must one day come a time when I tried my hand out at quilting.  When Oh, Fransson decided to sponsor a Quilt Along, I knew this was the perfect opportunity for me.

Although I didn’t follow her time schedule exactly, I found her instructions and resources to be so easy to follow and enjoyable.  Once I finished this quilt I had such a strong sense of accomplishment!  It still makes me so happy to see it draping over my couch.  I already have plans for my second quilt, and I know that this was only the beginning of a wonderful friendship between myself and quilting. 

I hope you enjoy my quilt and can find some inspiration out of it!
