Pretty Petals

My local modern quilt guild decided to participate in the Modern Quilt Guild Micheal Miller fabric challenge.  This is the quilt that I made for the challenge.  They provided us with fat eights of 6 fabrics which are the main features in the front of my quilt.  I loved the fabric with the colourful wedges and used that to inspire the start of my design with the stacked wedges.

The back of the quilt was made by piecing the scraps together into a strip and filled with Michael Miller Coral solids.

For the quilting I decided this would be a great time to try a spiral quilting.  I had two designs and after a bit of debating I decided to center the spirals on the fowers on the the front and back of the quilt.

The binding took a little longer than anticipated due to our new arrival, but she makes an adorable quilt model!

Quilting Spirals


I haven’t been getting much sewing done lately as the weather has finally gotten nice out!  I have been getting the garden in and doing some spring cleaning around the house instead of working in the sewing room.  However I have been working on getting some projects finished, and they are slowly coming together.  This week I have been working on getting the quilting on a small quilt I started last month.  Quilting

Now I just have to figure out how I am going to finish.  I have two options I am thinking of, so hopefully I can decide between them (or I might just have to flip a coin) so I can get this project moved to the finished pile!
