Earlier this year my guild participated in two different modern metallic quilting challenges, one sponsored by Michael Miller and one sponsored by Robert Kaufman. This is the mini quilt I made with the Michael Miller Glitz fabric. It will be shown next month at Quilt! Knit! Stitch!, a quilting and craft show being held in Portland and put on by Quilts, Inc (the team that makes International Quilt Market happen!)

I used a technique that my charity group had used earlier in the year and changed the layout around just a bit. It's a pretty small quilt (15 x 18 or something like that?) so I did some very small cross hatch quilting. I really liked the effect but can't see myself having the patience to do that on a larger quilt!

Love the juxtaposition of the stark black with the pink and gold. Makes for a beautiful quilt. Smiley

Thanks guys! The dark color is actually navy, all of the colors in the Glitz palette were so light we really wanted that dark contrast. There was also some mint fabric in the collection that I didn't end up using.
