“Petal Pusher”

-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.

Happy Sewing,
