EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN!
Have you ever looked at a traditional quilt block and thought that you could tweak that a bit and make it more modern? We are giving you the chance to do just that!
Our challenge will be a block-a-month entry for 12 months, and then a quilt challenge using all 12 blocks. We will provide a traditional quilt block idea, and YOU will recreate it in a modern aesthetic. The only restrictions are block size (12 ½ “ x 12 ½ “ unfinished) and materials – you must use Michael Miller fabrics only in your blocks. ANY Michael Miller fabric can be used, not just a certain line. You will have to identify the fabrics used for verification. Read the full Rules and Eligibility here. Everything Old Challenge Rules
Your block photos will be uploaded to a special photo link on the web, and they will be voted on by our readers and your peers! NOTE: This is a social media based challenge, and voting will require a link to Facebook.

The August 2015 block is SNAIL’s TRAIL (or some people call it Monkey’s Fist). We wanted to give you a bit more of a challenge this time. HAVE FUN WITH IT! Change it up; move the patterns around; make it bigger, smaller or sideways – it’s all up to you! Use piecing, paper piecing, fusing – your choice of technique! Just remember, the photo you enter has to be a completed fabric block – no drawings or pattern pieces. We can’t wait to see what you do with it!
The Prizes for August are a Fat Quarter Bundle from Michael Miller Fabrics, and a Thread Selection from Superior Threads!!
