mod counterpane

 As I prepare my home for the coming cooler nights I feel the desire to add a hand crafted mod counterpane to several beds.  The one above I found on etsy.
 Imagine waking up to this blaze of sunny yellows and oranges.
 The artist hand dyes the cotton.
Note the meticulous colored stitching.
love the reversibility factor.

Rainbows seem to be on the upswing.  I saw one the night of my daughter's back-to-school night.
What sort of mod bedding would you like to wrap yourself in.

I love all of these! What is mod counterpane? Is the pattern, the stitch, or something else altogether?

The stitching is so beautiful. I love the orange and yellow, would love to see it in creams and blues as well!

Ah, the orange gives everything a happy, golden note. Like a citrus sorbet. Ideal for the autmn/winter nights.
