Michael Miller Modern Challenge + Modern Metallics Challenge
    A few months ago, our Victoria Modern Quilt Guild arranged for us to get some free fabrics. I couldn't believe my luck! A fantastic new Guild and now, some free fabric! Life is great.
Then the penny drops. I have to cut it. Does anyone else have a problem cutting into a stack of beautiful fabric? Can't we just leave it in lovely piles and just admire it?? I know I can't be the only one....
 I took a deep breath and cut into the Modern Metallics first. And since I don't like sewing for nothing, I made something I needed. A pillow cover. I know, I make a lot of them. But I have two dogs and I'm constantly having to wash them. Yes, my dogs are allowed on the couch. Until I have grandchildren anyway.....
Ok, here's the pillow-
The pattern is The Metro from Pillow Pop. This is the third pillow cover I've made from this book and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last. Ok, so that's one challenge done.
Now I had to really work myself up to cut into the Michael Miller prints. But I finally managed it two nights ago. I  won't tell you what I'm making but I can tell you that it's not a pillow.
Here's a sneak peek...
I'm having problems blogging from my iPad. Any advice would be welcome :)
