Madrona Road Challenge

A big package from NYC came this week from Michael Miller fabrics.  I kind of freaked out a little because my husband found it on our doorstep and my first reaction was to say, "I don't know what this is!  I didn't order any fabric!"  I was so happy to realize that our guild was accepted to participate in the Madrona Road challenge.  Fourteen participants from our guild received small cuts of each print.  Originally, there was an overall deadline to complete the project, but now guilds have more flexibility and the BMQG will present completed projects at the February 16 meeting.  Here are the guidelines:
  • Complete a sewn project from the Madrona Road fabrics - a quilt is encouraged but you can make any sewn item.
  • You are allowed to use solids or other Madrona Road prints - do not add other prints to your project.  If you want to purchase additional MR fabrics to supplement what you already received, that is fine.
  • Present your item at the February meeting - if you cannot attend, please email Alice a picture of your item so that it can appear on the guild blog. 
I am so excited to see what everyone creates - this is going to be fun!

  1. Mine just arrived and I love them! I'm sifting through idea before I decide what to do with them. Unless, we do a quilting bee with them...?

    1. We will not be doing a quilting bee with them. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. I already have plans on what I'm going to do with mine. But was wondering if you could use a different print for the quilt backing?

    1. That is fine to use anything you want on the back.
