Fabric Surprise

I received a mysterious package from Michael Miller Fabrics recently. No paper with information inside the package, just two pieces of fabric tied up in a bow. I was completely mystified until I went to post about it on Instagram and saw something about the Michael Miller Challenge for the Modern Quilt Guild. I'd signed up for it and completely forgotten!

So now I have this really nice fabric, (seriously the hand of it is lovely) to design a quilt around. It has to all be made with Michael Miller fabrics, even the back and binding, so I'll probably have to find some more to make a big enough quilt. I really do like the colors that I was gifted with, so that's a good starting point. The print is a very nice and I can already imagine a lot of possibilities to utilize the lines and shading in the design.

Something you already had in mind?
Something Sizzix related?
City Sampler? ;-)

All very good questions, nothing I already had in mind, starting from scratch. Probably not Sizzix related but I might base it off of one of the shapes that I have and then play with sizing it up and cutting my own bigger size. Definitely not City Sampler related that is it's own Monster!
