Modern Mini Kwilt Challenge...




Ellison Lane Quilts is hosting a fun challenge.



Click here to see the entries or enter your mini kwilt 
until June 16th.  Then the voting begins for great prizes. 
The Linky is at the at the bottom of the Allison Lane post.

The Columbus Modern Quilt Guild had a Madrona Road "
Michael Miller" fabric challenge with a reveal this past April.  
Along with the fabric we were challenged 
to do our own interpretation of "Stars and Stripes"
This is my entry..you may have seen the before. 
My mini kwilt measures 13" x 24" 
and is my own design.

We were given 6 Fat-8ths and 1 FQ.
We could add more Madrona Road fabrics
or SOLIDS.  

I cut the yellow FQ,and resewed it to make the "solid background".
Then I cut strips at various width and layered them one
at a time arcoss the yellow...zig zagged them down.
The wonky star was free-style cut from some of the scraps,
layered on stop and zig zagged down.

 I added a solid gray for the for the backing and a 
solid black for the binding.

I played around with some fun FMQ designs.

I had some scraps left, so I made a friend this fun little bag 
for our kwilt shopping adventures!
Nothing like hands free fabric shopping.
