Welcome to the 2019 Riley Blake Fabric Challenge!
This year for the first time, we’re collaborating with an MQG member, Christopher Thompson! We're featuring prints from his new Riley Blake basics collection, Blossom, and Christopher helped select this year’s color palette. Our featured fabrics include Shades Robin, 1/8" Stripe Navy, Blossom Baby Pink, and Blossom on White Navy.
Signups open Saturday, March 9th at 4pm EST, 1pm PST. MQG Members will receive an email with the signup link. Sign up quickly, because we have many more members than we do fabric bundles, and bundles are first-come, first-serve.
Fabric will ship in late March, and the deadline for submissions is May 31, 2019. The top ten finalists will be displayed at Garden of Quilts in Lehi, Utah, Sep. 12–14, 2019. Check out Riley Blake’s website for more information!
Special thank you to Riley Blake Designs for hosting another great challenge!
