Kelly Miller’s Modern Rubiks quilt, based on a design by Ashley Newcomb, features large and small areas of print fabric. The negative space surrounding the smaller pieces of print fabric keeps the composition from getting too busy.
Here’s what Kelly had to say about herself and her quilt.
“I got my inspiration for this quilt from Film in the Fridge’s blog. The quilting for this quilt was done by Melissa Riche – the President of our guild, and a friend of mine.
I began quilting just a year or so ago. I had been sewing since I was a little girl with my grandmothers but had just made small things like clothing, pillowcases, simple blankets. It wasn’t until I started seeing all the sewing/quilting blogs that I really wanted to learn to quilt. I saw that there was a modern quilt guild that was started in Colorado by the name of Front Range Modern Quilt Guild so I contacted the President, came to the next meeting, and was hooked! I am part of the leadership committee and participate in meetings, swaps, challenges, etc. I can’t get enough of it!”
