Michael Miller Challenge Fabrics are in!

The Michael Miller Challenge fabrics have arrived.  If you signed up to receive a bundle, Lynne has them and will be in touch about coordinating a hand off if she hasn't already.

If you didn't sign up to get a bundle but would still like to participate, you can always purchase the fabrics on your own and jump in!

The challenge info provided by the MQG is below:


We're excited to unveil the next Michael Miller Fabric Challenge for QuiltCon 2019! This year’s fabrics include fabrics from Michael Miller’s basics collection — Hash Dot in Ebony, Hash Dot in Grass, Hash Dot in Marine, and Cotton Couture in Peach.

Each participant will receive four fat eighths of the challenge fabric. Like previous fabric challenges, we have many more members than available fabric. We wish everyone could get one, but the bundles are first come, first serve. However, you can still participate by purchasing the challenge fabric at your local quilt shop. Everyone who signs up for the challenge should submit their 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, participants must use at least two of the three selected hash dot fabrics and Cotton Couture Peach. However, participants may use as many Cotton Couture solids as desired. Binding and backing can be any Michael Miller fabric. Once completed, these quilts will be entered into the Michael Miller Fabric Challenge category at QuiltCon. The top prize for this category is $1,000!

Official Michael Miller Fabric Challenge Category Description: Eligible quilts must use a minimum of two of the three selected hash dot fabrics, Cotton Couture Peach, and any number of Cotton Couture solids. Additional Michael Miller prints or solids may be used on the backing and binding. All fabric will be shipped by mid-August. Quilt entries will be open July 1 to November 30, 2018 (the same as other QuiltCon quilt show entries). Quilts can be submitted via the form at quiltconentry.com.
