Modern Quilt Guild Riley Blake Fabric Challenge

Check out the latest blog post here for the updated rules and information

We have received our fabric, and the challenge is on! If you haven't gotten your fabric from Kayla, and you signed up back in August, email her to find out how to get it.

A few reminders about the challenge:

1) We all received 6 fat eighths from Riley Blake Designs Basics. some of our members swapped their pieces, some are planning on using all the fabrics. But, you don't have to use all of the fabric provided if you don't want to.
2) The challenge runs from now until December. Let's all plan to bring our finished products to our meeting January 7th, 2014 so we can show them off to each other!
3) The challenge is to use the Riley Blake fabric provided, any other Riley Blake fabric, and any solid.
4) Make anything quilted.
5) check out the community section of the Modern Quilt Guild site to find a place to post pictures and discuss the challenge with other mqg members.

For complete rules, check out the Modern Quilt Guild blog post.
