This year’s fabrics include 12 glamorous prints from Michael Miller, and each participant will receive six fat eighths at random.  Like previous fabric challenges, we have many more members than available fabric bundles…  We wish everyone could get one, but the bundles are first come, first serve.  That said, we ask that everyone who signs up to please plan to submit the final quilt to the Fabric Challenge category at QuiltCon — like other categories, this category is eligible for judging and awards up to $1,000!
To be eligible, quilts must primarily use the fabrics above, but additional coordinating Michael Miller solids are permitted.  Once completed, these quilts will be entered it into the Michael Miller Fabric Challenge category at QuiltCon.  The top prize for this category is $1,000!
The registration link will be sent to members via email on May 9th at 10 a.m. Eastern time, 7 a.m. Pacific.  To make things easy, here’s a handy time converter so you’ll know exactly when the link will be available to you.  Registration is open until all fabric bundles are gone or until May 23.  Bundles go quickly, so if you’re sure you want to enter, don’t wait! (However, if you’re not ready to commit, remember that you don’t have to get the free fabric to be involved – all you have to do is use the fabrics above in your quilt.)
All fabric will be shipped by mid-July, and the deadline for entries is November 30, 2015 (the same as other QuiltCon quilt show entries).
