Mod Star Tree, Lap Quilt


The Mod Star Tree design was inspired by a desire to create a modern holiday quilt, but with a heavy nod to tradition: the result is a whimsical tree made of traditional star blocks in a large, graphic layout. I used a wide variety of Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton solids for the stars. The greens are Kelly, Clover, Fern, Grasshopper, Holly, Jungle, Leprechaun, and Willow. The reds are Wine, Ruby, Cardinal, Chinese Red, Lipstick, Poppy, Rich Red, and Red. The yellows are Curry, Corn Yellow, and Buttercup. The background yardage is Kona Silver.

Featured in Love, Patchwork & Quilting Issue 53.

Measures 60″ by 80″

All fabrics are Kona Cotton solids. The reverse side of the quilt also Kona Silver (the background fabrics used in the front). Batting is Quilter’s Dream Dream Green. I used different 50wt Aurifil thread colors for the quilt to help define the topper, tree, and background. I also alternated the direction of the quilting to help create definition. The variegated thread I used to quilt the “tree” is #4650 (Leaves).

The edges of this one-of-a-kind quilt are straight, the corners are square, and the entire quilt lies flat; all features of a well-made quilt.

Pictures do not portray the true beauty of my quilts. You’ll know you have a treasure when you hold one in your hands. I promise you will not be disappointed with the quality of my work!

Mod Star Tree was made as a show quilt and it has not yet been washed. I am happy to wash prior to shipping.

Please launder your quilt on a gentle cycle in cold water and dry on low heat or hang to dry.
