MQG Basics Challenge with Riley Blake Designs

Look what Kelly received in the mail this week!  

Are you curious?

It's our fabric from Riley Blake Designs for the MQG's Fall Fabric Challenge!!  It was announced in mid-August.

The Basics Challenge with Riley Blake Designs

We are so excited to announce Riley Blake Designs as this year’s sponsor of the 3rd annual MQG members fabric challenge.
Basics! We all love those wonderful basics from Riley Blake. They are generously providing each official MQG member 6 fat eighths from their Basic category. Each member will be receiving fabrics like these colors and patterns.


  • The challenge runs from September 2013-December 2013.
  • Members can make anything they want as long as it is quilted!
  • Add in any solids or Riley Blake printed fabric.
  • You do not need to use all the fabrics given to you.
  • Upload and share your photos to the Fabric Challenge Forum on the Community site.
  • MQGs can create guild specific challenges, as long as the other guidelines are upheld.
  • Don’t forget to use the #mqgrileyblakechallenge on Instagram and Twitter!
  • See the members Community site for sign ups.
  • Fabric sign ups end Aug 31st, 2013
We cannot wait to see what you make! 
We signed up by the August 31st deadline, and now the wait is over.  Or at least it will be by our next meeting and sew day - Saturday, October 12, 2013 - when we distribute these little bundles of awesomeness!

Kristi, Cindy, Marcy, Kathleen, Melissa L, Becky, Donna L, Wendi, Elaine, Kasandra, Faye, Kira, Diane, Melissa J, Cricket, Elizabeth, Sheila, Kim, Gina, Annie, Bobbi, Liz, Rhonda, Leslie*, Jennifer*, and Kelly will each receive a bundle. 

*(edited to add those who responded verbally)   

And there's a little bit of hope for those of you who didn't respond to the Email or who may have just joined us.  There will be a few extras.  

As Kelly said "If you're a member, but didn't let me know you wanted to participate, and you want to, we will have a few extra bundles - but it will be strictly first come first served at the meeting."

Thank you MQG and Riley Blake Designs!
