I can’t say no to a challenge. When the Modern Quilt Guild posted the Michael Miller Fabric Challenge – I was in immediately!
These were the six fat eighths that I was sent to incorporate into my challenge quilt.
We could add in any solid or Michael Miller printed fabric. I pulled a few of the solids I had that I thought might work with the fabrics. Then I went on the hunt for some Michael Miller prints that I had! I found a great pink narwhale one and later discovered that all my Laura Gunn fabrics are for Michael Miller – score!
My design all started with the traditional block ‘Dutch Rose’. (tutorial coming soon to craftsy)
And after that I tried to think ‘modern’ as I continued to work on my quilt.
I will blog more about my entire process later when I ‘reveal’ the final quilt but right now – I have finished six 24” blocks and I need your help! I would love to hear which ‘combination’ you like the best…I’m completely torn at this time and I just need to ‘talk through it’ a bit. I’m looking to you all to leave a comment with your thoughts on which block layout you like best…and if you know why, why? Here are the options…
None of the above. This is horrible – what were you thinking!?
Thanks so much for your help on this…this is way outside my box…but it has been fun to give it a try…if not a bit stressful. Oh – and I’m completely out of the grey fabric so I pretty much have to work with this.
