Modern Mood Quilt, Summer 2010

Mod-Mood Quilt, Summer 2010, 60″ x 62″, hand and machine pieced, hand quilted.

Using a mood-color chart created from hand dyed cotton fabric, I chose colors to match my mood at six different intervals over the summer. I used bias cut strips to piece the curved corners. A discovery that I’m looking forward to exploring more fully in the next piece of this series.

Buy it on Etsy. SOLD! OR check out the Mod-Mood Quilt Craft-along tutorial for guidance on how to make your own.

    This is such a beautiful quilt, I don’t ever tire of revisiting the photos. GOR-GEOUS! The color/mood graphic is cool, too. Love how you’ve incorporated this little slide show into your blog post. Wish you were located on the east coast. I would love to visit your studio and invite you to my craft room for a cuppa tea.

    It was so great to open my email and find your newsletter. Ever learning, after 20 minutes I think I have figured out how to “drop by and say hello.” These quilts are beautiful–it makes me sway and smile–what a gift. I looked at the Torah covers and your documentation is exquisite. You have become quite a photographer! I started writing this summer and am part of a weekly group. I am finding it satisfying in the way you speak about doing your art.

    The Mod-Mood Quilt is so beautiful, so evocative! Your hand quilting really enhances the movement and liveliness of the design. It’s fabulous.

    just wonderful.

    i am a new quilter – teaching myself but in all honesty spending WAY more time looking at and reading about quilts than actually making one – and this is truly beautiful, truly unique and truly inspirational.

    i am excited to get into quilting; thank you for sharing your work.

  22. Mary Keasler says:

    This is truly one of the most original quilts that I have ever seen. It is fantastic.

    i love everything about this quilt… i have been working slowly on a log cabin quilt, making blocks as therapy when i’m having a hard time – it’s made from scraps of print cottons and my stash of colours is rather limited compared to this fabulous spectrum you work from, but still – i love the way a whole range of unconventional colour combinations can come together so harmoniously, so powerfully. your work is so inspirational. thank you for sharing it here….

    • Sherri Lynn Wood says:

      I think quilt making is great therapy Anna. I know from experience :) You can incorporate the idea of choosing colors based on your moods into any quilt you are working on. Even a log cabin. I learned a lot about color and my moods this way.

    Oh it’s really just so wonderful!! Amazing quilt.
