A Mid-Mod Quilt and NTT

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I've been busy turning that pile of chain piecing into a fun new quilt top this week, and I think the jewel/star shape has a retro, mid-mod feel.

This quilt uses the Cider collection with Ivory Bella Solids in the background, and I'm really enjoying the muted palette.  It's just so soft and pretty.  I got the backing put together and basted this quilt yesterday, so it's all ready to be quilted.  

Last week's party was just amazing.  It was wonderful to browse through the links while sitting at home under all of the ice and snow.  Thankfully, we're closer to 70 degrees and sunny this week, and the snow has been reduced to tiny piles here and there.  Here are a few projects that caught my eye! 

Kathy's Quilting Blog shared this colorful, scrappy quilt-

This fun quilt top was linked up by DonnaleeQ.  I spy a lot of Amy Butler goodness in there!

Look at this rainbow beauty by Sandra at mmm quilts-

Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework showed off this pretty quilt (apparently I'm feeling the rainbows this week!)-

And I simply cannot allow this stunning purple quilt by Jayne at Twiggy and Opal to go unnoticed-

Okay, y'all!  If you got snow and ice dumped on you last week, I hope you're digging out in some warmer temps by now.  And if not, I hope you're snuggled up in your warm house with something hot to drink, working on a quilt.  Either way- let's party!
