Each month, on the 15th, a traditional block is announced and the challenge is to interpret the block in a modern way by making a 12 1/2" square block made from only Michael Miller fabrics. The blocks are uploaded each month by the 10th and voting is open from the 11th through the 14th. (In order to vote you will need a Facebook account.)
We are 7 months into the challenge and this month's block is Square-in-a-Square. I am calling mine Minimal Square. For my blocks I am using only Michael Miller Cotton Couture. My block backgrounds are all made using Cotton Couture in Pluto. I am also using Azure in each block and adding in Apple, Lava and/or Magenta from time to time.

Here are my previous 6 blocks. My interpretations of the traditional blocks are from left to right:
- Flying Geese - Flying into the Sun
- Snail's Trail - Trail Blazers
- Ohio Star - Ohio on Point
- Card Trick - Simple Transparency Trick
- Bow Tie - Bow Tie Bold
- Double Pinwheel - Curvy Pinwheel
There will be a quilt challenge once we have completed all 12 blocks which I mentioned in my 2016 quilting goals. You can read all the Everything Old Is New Again block and quilt challenge rules here.
