Michael Miller Fabrics and The Electric Quilt Company (maker of EQ7 quilt design software) teamed up this month to host a mini quilt challenge in celebration of EQ7's 25th year.
The rules were just to use Michael Miller fabrics to make a mini quilt that measured 20" square or less.
I hunted through my stash to find all of my Michael Miller fabrics, and kept coming back to my Vintage Camper fabrics. I have been "hoarding" them for quite a few years. I bought several of the prints at Nancy's Quilt Shop in northwest Las Vegas, NV before they went out of business. I bought several other prints at Prairie Flower Crafts in Alden, KS.
I wanted this mini quilt to highlight the camper fabrics and not be a distraction from them. This led me to choose a simple four patch pattern. I fussy cut the Vintage Campers fabrics to make large squares (they finish at 6") and fussy cut the Vintage Chairs and gnome fabrics for the smaller squares (they finish at 3").
In our small town, we have a cute antique and boutique shop called E. Marie's. They have a vintage truck and camper in front of their store. I asked for permission to photograph the quilt there (awkward!). But the results were so worth it!
