Madrona Road Fabric Challenge

We have received the shipment of the Madrona Road  Challenge fabric! Here are the details about what is expected:

The guidelines of the challenge: Create the challenge you'd like with just one rule: Please only add more Madrona Road or solids to the projects. There's no requirement to make quilts, but since we're a quilt guild, something quilted is encouraged. You can use other colorways of the line, you can use other fabrics of the line.

In terms of an end date, don't worry about that. We realize that the timing with the fabric shipping didn't allow for it, so just get the challenge done in the time frame you're able. For consideration of projects to be showcased at QuiltCon in the Michael Miller booth, please complete them by January 31.

We got the blue/gray/yellow colorway. Strawberry Patches has some of the line, too. You may use any brand of solids you choose, just no prints outside of the Madrona Road line. 

I'll have bundles to pass out at our Christmas party meeting on the 15th. If you want to participate in the challenge, please post your name under this post. If I don't get your name here or on Facebook by the 11th, there will not be a bundle for you. 

Our Christmas meeting will be held on the 15th at Strawberry Patches from 2:00 - 4:00. Everyone is to bring finger foods to share, and bring show 'n tell, too! The guild will be providing plates, napkins, utensils, and drinks. Each member is to also bring one  pre-cut and factory packaged charm pack in a small, unmarked, paper bag. 

I'm really looking forward to sharing the Christmas spirit with my quilty friends!

Until next we meet,
