My Modern Quilt Guild is participating in a challenge sponsored by Michael Miller fabrics.  It is called the Madrona Road Challenge and was offered to us by the national Modern Quilt Guild.  We submitted our request and we were accepted to participate.

Michael Miller Fabrics has provided us with fabric from their new line called "Madrona Road".  Each guild sets up its own guidelines for the challenge.

Our challenge is due at our next meeting in February.  The challenge leader distributed 3 fat eighths of fabric with a fat quarter of Kona snow fabric and gave us the rules for the challenge.  Since we are turning these in at the next meeting, I will have to wait until then to show you the finished blocks.  However, I will show you the three fabrics that were in my packet.

I have designed my two blocks as well as the "extra"  that our leader suggested we do.

We must use all three of these as well as the Kona Snow.  We cannot add any extra fabrics.

We are using the book  Quilting Modern  this year as our guide for all of our programs.  The leader chose the Log Cabin unit for us to use to design our blocks.

So this Monday will be my challenge work day.  LilBit is keeping me company.



  1. Looking forward to seeing what you create with the challenge fabric.

  2. I look forward to seeing your blocks. The fabrics are lovely!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Sandra. The blocks will show up after the meeting in February.

  3. I am still in the contemplating mode but hope to get mine started soon....Our meeting was just great wasn't it. Talk to you soon my friend.
