I've been trying for months to figure out just what I wanted to do with Melody Miller's awesome-giant-bee-featuring Ruby Star Spring, and I finally decided that a new Mod Mosaic quilt was the way to go.
The Mod Sampler Quilt-Along was the first quilt-along I ever did on my blog. I've been overwhelmed by the response to this pattern, and it's been so much fun to see so many different versions of this quilt popping up around blogland!
The original pattern was spread across a whole bunch of different blog posts and some of the instructions were written differently than I would write them today. I've been meaning to update the Mod Sampler instructions into an actual pattern, but just haven't had the time until now.
I'm happy to say that (finally!) if you'd like to make the Mod Sampler, I have a pdf pattern for you. As always, I ask that you please refer to my free pattern guidelines.
I'm leading the activity (a Charm Square Swap and associated fun) at the May meeting of the Portland Modern Quilt Guildand have written this post mainly for the PMQG peeps who wanted additional information on cutting charm squares. It's general information though, so hopefully others will also find it useful!
I already know that I want to use a white for the sashing on my Scrappy Paintbox Quilt. I liked the way it looked on my first Paintbox Quilt and I think it's the best way to show off all the beautiful colors.
