-my entry for the Michael Miller Modern Quilt Guild Challenge.
45″ x 55″
When I started this challenge, I knew I wanted to incorporate the design of the main Petal Pinwheel focus print. I’ve also been wanting to challenge myself to draft and make a New York Beauty block, so the center of my blossom was decided. I machine appliqued the large petals using additional prints from the collection.
The background is Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Aqua. I added some grey Michael Miller prints from other collections to get a scrappy look for my leaves.

Wow, that is gorgeous!!!
Love it…….as usual, you two. So the challenge you really ought to accept is getting around to that ugly quilt 🙂
It really is fabulous and I love the idea of using a NY beauty for the center. Good luck.
Wow! So beautiful! — Michele
As usual, beautiful work. I wouldn’t be surprised if you won the challenge again.
This is SO beautiful. The pictures just don’t do it justice. I’m so glad I have seen it live and in person.
Just gorgeous! Wow – such beautiful quilting…
SO stunning, Doris. I’m so happy I saw it up close and personal!
