FINALLY – Finished Photos of Hopscotch Lane

It will not stop raining in Florida for more than about 20 minutes at a time. I managed to dash outside and hang this up so I could photograph it for the Modern Quilt Guild Michael Miller Challenge and get it submitted before the deadline. I’m very excited with the way this quilt turned out! Probably one of the few times it came out just like I imagined it in my head, all the way down to the quilting.  This quilt is 100% Michael Miller fabrics and I quilted it using 40wt Aurifil thread for the teal background and used a little bit of 50wt white thread for the dresdens. I quilted this on my Pfaff Powerquilter 16.0 and used a Handiquilter Versa Tool for the straight line work.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
