The Green quilt

Even though green is not the main color of this quilt, the customer named it like that! The quilt was made using a simple squares pattern with 8 inch blocks, and many different Michael Miller fabrics. It was quilted edge to edge on a diagonal square grid of 3 inches apart.

This quilt was a commission and was sold prior to publishing this post. You can see other quilts for sale here: SHOP
