This past week I have been working on my submission for the Michael Miller Couture Cottons Challenge for Quilt Con. Each person who signed up was sent 8 fat eighths of the pastel colors from the Couture Cotton line by Michael Miller. I have found this to be especially challenging because pastels, for the most part, turn me off, but hey, that’s what makes this a challenge…right!
I have posted a couple full views on Facebook and on Instagram. I don’t have a good pic on my camera to post on here. I will share a full view when it is all done. For now, here is a picture of my quilting progress. I finished the FMQ yesterday and started on the straight-ish quilting. I am doing gentle curves with my walking foot.
When I finally finish this one up, I will tell you all about my inspiration and how I made the quilt. Maybe by the time I finish I will also have a name, right now it I am just calling it the pastel quilt because I just haven’t thought of anything more fitting yet.
I will tell you black thread on black fabric is very challenging to quilt with because it is very hard to see where you have been and to keep the swirls from running into each other!
Have a happy Monday!
