Block & Quilt Challenge NOVEMBER 2015!

Modern Quilts Unlimited Magazine and Michael Miller Fabrics have teamed up for an exciting new block challenge with! Additional Sponsors are Babylock, Superior Threads and Mountain Mist Batting.

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 November 2015 block is BOW TIE. 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 November are a Fat Quarter Bundle from Michael Miller Fabrics, a thread selection from Superior Threads and a one-year subscription to Modern Quilts Unlimited!
