July is here and I'm on to the Modern Quilt Guild Michael Miller challenge!
|The Challenge Fabric Collection|
You know that old saying that you can inspiration anywhere and usually when you least expect it? Well, it’s true & it happened to me on this project. Driving home last week, I go through an older residential neighborhood and I spot these wood trim decorations on the side of a cute bungalow.
Do you see the prairie style influence in them? I do but I’m turning it modern! I think this will make a cute baby quilt. On Saturday, I graphed it out on paper and got busy.
So far the center is pieced. I need to be careful with my cutting as I only have a yard of the background grey. I want to use what I purchased already for this – no extra trips to the fabric store.

I think I can, I think I can…
In the meantime, the DDD quilt is hanging on the design wall waiting for inspiration on how to quilt it to walk through the door. Maybe I need to drive around some more and see what I can find. You just never know!
