QuiltCon 2015: Michael Miller Spring Cotton Couture Fabric Challenge

The Michael Miller fabric challenge using their Spring Cotton Couture line produced an array of pastel and very spring colored quilts, as it should be! As usual the award winners for the category yard are at the bottom of the post.

We are nearing the end of our QuiltCon 2015 coverage, thought there are still probably 5 posts to go. Soon we will also be covering the Stitch Modern 2015 Show, the Joe Cunningham lecture at Piedmont Center of the Arts, and we have a couple new books to talk about as well as some quilters to highlight.

Enjoy!
