Free Spirit Designer Challenge

Guess what came in the mail last week? Our BMQG Habitat fabrics for our participation in the Free Spirit Designer Challenge arrived! We received a little less than 1 yard each of eight prints for our 10 participants. Those enrolled in the challenge, who attended last Saturday's meeting, have received their packets and the others were mailed today. (Current, 2011 paid members were given the opportunity to sign up for this awesome opportunity.)

We have not received a lot of direction from Free Spirit on how our guild should run the challenge and therefore have decided to have a very loose/unstructured contest among our participants. Simply make what you would like with your fabrics - it does not have to be a quilt - but please make sure to not add other printed fabrics (solids are okay). Just do your best to utilize/showcase the fabrics you have received. We will vote on the best completed project at our September meeting and the winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to SewFreshFabrics! If you cannot attend the September meeting, please make sure to add a picture of your project in the flickr group.

I can't wait to see what people come up with!!!! Please let me know if you have any questions.


  1. I'm looking forward to it. I can't wait to touch the fabric and see what it inspires.

  2. I wish I had joined in on time because this looks like a lot of fun!
