Mod Squad Quilt - WIP

I love to purchase fat quarters at quilt shows. And of course, after a while they start to stack up. So I am always perusing books and magazines for patterns that specifically call for fat quarters.

I found this perfect pattern from the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Fresh Quilts magazine. The pattern is called Mod Squad and uses 13 fat quarters.

I've been dying to find the right pattern for what I've labeled my science nerd fabrics. So I pulled out 17 fat quarters that blend nicely. The funny thing is that I put together the fat quarters before I found this pattern.

So the first thing I had to do was eliminate 4 of the fat quarters from the bundle I created. Once I settled on that, I started to read the instructions closely and I didn't even realize that the fabrics I was using were similar to the ones in the magazine!

I did mean for that to happen but I think that will take away some of my anxiety in worrying about how this quilt will turn out. I can't wait to get started on it.
