a favorite recent quilt

So several of the folks in my blogroll are posting quilts to the Blogger's Quilt Festival, so I thought I would post one of my favorite recent quilts as well.

mod applique stripe quilt

I discuss some of the details of making it on this post, but it's my own design with applique and some embroidery and a rad backing fabric with vintage Kellogg's cereal advertisements.
