Mid Century Modern Quilt Top Finished

I used my AccuQuilt 2.5″ strip die to cut sashing strips which is much easier for me right now than rotary cutting, so I was able to get the sashing cut and sewn for the Mid Century Modern quilt I’m making for my friend, James. Please see my MCM Update #1 post for close-ups of the first eight blocks and the details about this project and my MCM Update #2 post that shows close-ups of last eight blocks. Below is the finished quilt top:

I have a couple of small sewing tasks to get done in the next few weeks, but for now I’m still trying to minimize cutting/sewing and typing which has freed up some time to do some much needed household organization. I’ve been finding things that have been hiding for a long time!

On Tuesday, I will be linking up to Quilt Schmilt: To-Do Tuesday to share this update with my quilting peeps who participate in this linky party.

    Hey Mary! Nice job. It’s just the nicest, most thoughtful gift. Those are the best kind to give, too, in my opinion. You’ve truly put your heart and soul and designing skills into this project. Happy Sunday to you, my friend. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. What a thoughtful and beautiful gift this is going to make. Will you be shipping this off to Rebecca for quilting? I just went through a big round of spring cleaning, which felt really good, although it sounds like you might be doing a bit deeper organization; I hope it’s satisfying to work through it all.

  3. Oh Mary, the quilt top looks fantastic! I hope your hand/wrist is healing more and more. That deep cleaning is always an interesting adventure, but feels so good when it is done!

    OMG! I’m in love. The recipient of this quilt is one lucky person.


  8. This quilt top looks even more fabulous in person; I love the subtle texture of the fabrics you selected. Can’t wait until this one’s turn comes up in in my quilting queue! I hope your wrist pain is abating and healing during this time that you’re resting !


  9. Mary this is just a beautiful quilt. James will be thrilled. Thank you for linking with To Do Tuesday.
