|Siren Song by Michael Miller fabrics|
I'd been wanting to make a quilt like this ever since I saw this striking orange mini quilt at our national Symposium in January 2015.

It was made by Shirley Mooney, a very talented local quilter and tutor. Fortunately Shirley was running classes to learn to make this quilt, so I went along in June. You can read about the class in this earlier blog post, and you can see more of Shirley's work here on her blog.
It's taken a few months to finish my quilt, mainly due to all the machine quilting required. Here's the back view:
I used three different colours of thread to quilt this, sometimes matching the fabric and sometimes contrasting. It's hard to show in a photo, but it is there, as the back proves.
So another mini quilt is finished, and once again, I really like it. I still have another version of this quilt pinned to a sheet, waiting to be assembled. That's what happens when you buy too much fabric - you just make another version.
Finished size is 22" high.
