A Modern Quilt for the New Year

McCalls M6483
It's been awhile since I purchased this pattern. 2... maybe 3 years. I'm not sure what drew me to it, or why I even bothered. At the time, I wasn't much for quilting anyway. I think i just had a great appreciation for the simplicity of the look, how modern it was. From time to time, I would pull this pattern out, and start to think of ways I could use it. I never got very far though, and never even opened the envelope more or less started cutting out the pattern pieces.

Just a few weeks ago around Christmas time, I thought again about this pattern, that it would look great done in Christmas prints and used for a holiday quilt. It kind of fits the theme I'm going for with our Christmas decor, and the trees could be decorated to be Christmasy.

Sewing A Quiltsmart Mondo Bag

I finished my Quiltsmart Modo Bag last week, and let me tell you... It is indeed Mondo!

The Mondo Bag from Quiltsmart is made using fusible interfacing and 2.5" squares of fabric. Making it perfect for jelly rolls or layer cakes. It does take a few hours from start to finish, but is an easy enough project even a beginner can do it!
it is called the Mondo Bag for its Mondo size measures approx. 17" tall with a 10" square bottom. Very roomy! Measurements will vary slightly due to inseams and the amount of seams in the bag.
