but I finally got to meet in person the quilt that the Portland Modern Quilt Guild did as part of our Michael Miller Neon challenge. I had heard rumors about the quilt and seen a small photo of it on the Michael Miller site but that was it, until last week.
My interest in this quilt is purely selfish… you see my challenge block had ended up on the quilt. Earlier in the year I took the lovely pack of Neon fabric, chose a paper piecing pattern and made this beauty…
The various blocks were all collected up at our MQG meeting and it was not till many many months later I saw that they had been turned into this…
So modern. So bright. So fun.
Yep my star had joined a number of other beautiful blocks, including my friend Lisa’s gorgeous improv block to become this quilt.
I really love how all the random blocks are made to work with this unique layout. Amber Wilson, a PMQG member did an amazing job piecing the top and Nancy Stoval’s quilting is just perfect, as always.
This quilt has been traveling a bit. It was featured at the Michael Miller booth at Quilt Market in May and then was shown at the Sisters Outdoor show in summer.
I am so very proud of my little block and it’ place on this beautiful quilt.
ps. Please excuse the photos… I had to grab photos when I could but I had to share…I just had to.
