|Quilter in the Closet: "Water Lily" for Modern Quilt Guild Michael Miller Challenge Quilt|
Here's a bit closer look at it:

And for those of you who like a pic of a backside (not that kind of backside, mind you!).
|Quilter in the Closet: the backside (of the quilt, not my backside)|
The piecing of the small Dahlia block was pretty challenging, and when it came time to quilt it, I didn't really want to cover up the block with any special quilting. So, I just stitched it in the ditch. Later I added some really small pebbling to the outer edge of the block so the flower shape would stand out a little more. I also quilted a ghost block in the negative space, and my favorite Seafoam filler in the spaces between. I think it makes the quilt look a little like a water lily floating on a pond during a gentle rain.
What do you think?
