Red & Aqua Mini Mod Pod Quilt

Hi everyone!  Earlier this week, I mentioned I'd be back to share about an red and aqua quilt that was in the works.  Well ... I finished the binding last night and here she is ...
I adapted the Mod Pod pattern from Carolina Patchworks for this one.  I picked up this pattern some time ago - I think the design is super cool.  For this quilt, I just made a half-scale version of the pattern by using 1.5" strips instead of 3" strips.  I also did a lot of chain piecing instead of pre-cutting all the parts.  And minus a few small errors with seams lining up, I am really pleased with how this came out!  I did use the Designer Beads in Red and Mist for this one and its such a fun combo!

Here's a closer shot of how I chose to quilt it.  A walking foot and a lengthened stitch is especially helpful.  I really love the drape that the straight-line quilting gives this little quilt.  A different feel than when I use free motion designs.
For the back, I thought this red and white print from my stash would be fun.  And I kept the binding the same as the red in the quilt (Designer Beads in Red) to keep things clean and simple on the front. So, what do you think?!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by and happy sewing! :-)
