Mod Quilt Sampler Part 1 of 3

By: Nuts about Needlepoint

In the Mod Quilt Sampler Part 1 of 3 from Nuts About Needlepoint, you will learn the first two blocks of this quilt project. The contemporary lines and mod colors give this quilt a special feel.

Mod Quilt Sampler Part 1 of 3


Zweigart white 18 mesh mono canvas 11″ x 13″
1 card each Rainbow Gallery Splendor in:

  • S820 (dark red) & S1088 (light red)
  • S1138 (dark orange) & S978 (light orange)
  • S876 (dark yellow) & S908 (light yellow)
  • S997 (dark fuchsia) & S996 (light fuchsia)
  • S1113 (dark apricot) & S977 (light apricot)
  • S950 (dark hot pink) & Needlepoint, Inc, 682 (light hot pink)
  • S879 (pale yellow) – borders

Overall Structure:

The design is made up of 5 blocks across and 6 blocks down. The blocks are all 20 threads square. The sashing, or area between the blocks is four threads. This makes the thread count for the piece as a whole 126 x 150. On 18 mesh canvas, this is 7 inches by about 8.5 inches.

Each block is made using a light and a dark shade of the same color. The colors are red, apricot, orange, yellow, fuchsia, and pink. The borders are all pale yellow and the outside one stitch edge is dark hot pink.

A particular block is found in diagonal lines going from upper right to lower left. Each time a block is repeated the colors change.

Begin to stitch about 2.5 inches down and 4 inches across from the upper left corner of your canvas. You will stitch the second block in the top row first.

Stitch the second block, Log Cabin Square using the orange shades. The structure of this block is based on the Log Cabin Quilt Block and is made up of Scotch and Cashmere Stitches. For the initial block, begin in the center. For all later blocks, begin with the outside ring of Cashmeres; this will make placement easier.

Leave four threads open between the left edge of this block and the right edge of the block in the upper left corner. Using the two shades of red, stitch this Checker Framed Mosaic. In this block squares of Framed Mosaic alternate with blocks of Basketweave. Please note that the center stitch in each Mosaic square is a Cross Stitch. The darker red goes into the upper left and lower right corners of the 20 thread block.

Leave four threads open below the quad block and stitch a second squares block using dark and light hot pink. Please note that in this block the outer and center squares are the lighter shade.
