MQG Michael Miller Challenge – FINALLY Finished

michael miller challenge quilt Upon receiving this fabric last year as part of the Michael Miller Challenge I had an idea instantly and got right to work.  However, that idea did not pan out so well.  The original idea was something like a garden path and the blocks would be stepping stones.  Before I ripped the pieces apart if looked more like a drunken stumble path.

It was awful and not at all what I had envisioned.  The pile of fabrics was set aside for a bit to let me come up with a new design.

michael miller challenge quilt I have some triangle scraps that I was sorting through and the idea hit, let’s make triangles and keep it simple.  I grabbed some Kona Charcoal and white to add to the top and bottom.

For quilting I went with gray lines in the Kona Charcoal.  With the triangles, I wanted more color so some lines are orange, aqua, green, yellow, gray, and white.  You can see the colors in the picture above.

The backing is a leftover piece of a large sheet I had in my stash.  Binding is just scraps that were left over machine sewn all around.
