Up For A New Challenge?

Announcing Fall 2012 Fabric Challenge Madrona Road by Michael Miller

The Modern Quilt Guild last year sponsored the Robert Kaufman Kona Challenge and the Jay McCarroll Habitat Challenge. And now the MQG is accouncing this year's Winter challenge, Madrona Road by Portland Modern Quilt Guild Member, Violet Craft.

Once upon a time in the windy lands of the Old West a baby girl was born to a rooted father and a gypsy mother. And so begins the story of Madrona Road, a modern, sophisticated fabric collection of crisp florals, monochromatic textures and text prints.

Violet Craft is a momma, a wifey, a maker and a Sweet Hot Yam. She designs licensed fabric for Michael Miller Fabrics from her home in Portland, Oregon. Her newest collection, Madrona Road ships to stores in July 2012 and her new collection of Distinctive Lifestyle Sewing Patterns will be released in Winter of 2012. Most days she can be found playing on Twitter, Flickr and Instagram under the ID violetcraft or blogging at http://blog.violetcraft.com/

The challenge begins December 1 and ends January 31.The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild  has requested 12 fabric packets.  More about the challenge to follow as details are given.
