The Modern Quilt Guild - Michael Miller Challenge:
Fabric was passed out to the 22 members who signed up for this national challenge!
RIMQG rules: Focus on negative space - at least 25% of your finished quilt should be solids, you are not required to use all fabrics given, and you can add solids of your choice. See link to MQG for national rules and info about entering to win the challenge (enter by 6/23) - http://themodernquiltguild.wordpress.com/2014/02/16/are-you-ready/.
