Q: What Do You Get When... take 6 creative and enthusiastic quilt and fiber artists / internet bloggers and give them their choice of colors in 4 fat quarters of Mirror Ball Dot and 3 quarter-yard cuts of Cotton Couture from Michael Miller Fabrics?

A: A Blog Hop!

That is what I presented to these six participants, all of them dedicated fans of Mirror Ball Dot since the first release years ago. I gave them 2 fabrics in their choice of colors and 6 weeks to create a project and then blog about it. I encouraged them to think outside of their normal comfort zones by limiting the fabrics used to create whatever pleased their fancy: quilts, multi-dimensional objects, ideas that have been in the wings for ages.

Check out their blogs. They just might tease us with a sneak peek at what they're working on for the Blog Hop or just check out what they're currently working on, being inspired by and what makes these creative people tick.

  1. Just checked out everyone's blog. What a talented group of people. Can't wait to see what they do with their fabrics. This is going to be fun.

  2. Funny that I should come across this post! I talked to Michael Miller Fabrics at QuiltCon. They are working with us (Kansas City MQG) on our next challenge using Mirror Ball Dot and Cotton Couture. I made a few quilts with the first round from years ago. Our challenge will be announced next month! I can hardly wait!
