Finished Gradated Mod Mosaic Quilt

It's been nearly a year and a half since I started planning this quilt. I'm happy to finally show you the finished product! (Related posts can be found here.)

This first photo shows off the quilting really well. I quilted organic straight lines about a half inch apart across the entire width of the quilt. It took a little while, especially if I count all the hours I spent unpicking the previous quilting. But, I love the result.

This photo shows the colors as they truly are. (They look a bit faded in the first picture.)

For the backing, I made a large patchwork to mimic the colors on the front. Then I offset the squares and added a border using the same black and white crosshatch print that I put on the front. The binding is the same print.

This quilt will happily be staying at my house. It's a good lap size. And with all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into making it, I don't think I'd be able to part with it anyway.

I think it looks fantastic!!! And I'm so glad you're keeping it, because it looks so darned awesome :) The quilting really complement the piecing, I know the un-quilting was painful, but I think it was really worth it. And I love what you did with the back!

I just love this. Your quilting works great - I've unpicked a whole quilt once too and it's awful - but I think it's worth it to have a gorgeous quilt you're happy with

This is seriously one of the coolest quilts I've ever seen. My husband loved it too at HMQS.

It was worth it in the end! I can't imagine the unpicking and re-doing, but you did a great job!
