Mod Sampler Done

Hello!  I got my modern sampler quilt done this winter, but for various (and not very good) reasons, I didn't get it photographed until recently.  Here is the finished quilt.  The pattern is Mod Sampler by Elizabeth Hartman and I made it shades of turquoise, chartreuse and grey, with black and white.  The binding is a black and white pop floral, just perfect to frame the juicy colours of the quilt.  I had been hoping to quilt it in free-motion, but my trusty machine wasn't up to the task so I stitched in the ditch around all the seams instead.  It looks ok and I wanted to have it done, even though it didn't wind up getting quilted the way I wanted.  I have another quilt almost ready to be quilted and a new (to me) machine that can do free motion quilting, but that is a blog post for another day.

Edited to add a picture of the back (still off - managed not to get a photo of it finished, maybe another blog post some time soon).
