Modern Traditional #DSTTchallenge

Have you heard about the Dear Stella & Timeless Treasures Modern Traditional  mini quilt challenge?

Be sure to share your progress shots on Instagram using #DSTTchallenge and check out their blogposts for all of the entry details.

Since my love of mini quilts isn't a secret, and I do tend to favor modern traditional styles, they asked me to be a guest judge for the challenge. And that does sound like it could be a lot of fun!


The winner gets to take home this scrumptious stack of fat quarters half yard cuts from Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures! The prize is 60 half yard cuts of Timeless Treasures Sketch and Dear Stella Mini Confetti Dots, for a total of 30 yards of fabric!





I'll make my own Modern Traditional mini quilt using some of these fun fabrics. Keep an eye out for my mini quilt reveal when the challenge wraps up!



Tell us in the comments if you're working on a #DSTTchallenge quilt - or if you're inspired to get working on one now!

wow, wouldn't I love to take that pile home! If I had to describe my style it would certainly be Modern-Traditional but I don't know that I ever really think about it when I'm making something.
