Modern Mini Quilt Challenge 2017 - Stepping Stones

    I just submitted this mini quilt to the Quilt Expo Modern Mini Quilt Challenge 2017.  (link here)  After finishing the Eye Candy Quilt, I wanted to play with bright colors against black, and decided to see how the smallest little pieces would look on a black background.  The piece is 20 x 20 inches, and is made of Kona solids and Kona black.  The little strips of colored scraps are only 1/4 inch wide.  I love how they popped in this simple grid design.  I used a matte black thread to do some dense pebble quilting inside the boxes and on the outer border.  I left an inch frame around the boxes and the grid unquilted. I am very happy with how this turned out!
     I will post the process and details later, but in the meantime, enjoy your weekend!

Take care,
Gretchen
