Announcing! Winter 2012 Fabric Challenge

Madrona Road by Violet Craft for Michael Miller.

We know how much you loved the Robert Kaufman Kona Challenge and the Jay McCarroll Habitat Challenge. We are happy to announce this year’s Winter challenge, Madrona Road by Portland Modern Quilt Guild Member, Violet Craft.

Once upon a time in the windy lands of the Old West a baby girl was born to a rooted father and a gypsy mother. And so begins the story of Madrona Road, a modern, sophisticated fabric collection of crisp florals, monochromatic textures and text prints.

Violet Craft is a momma, a wifey, a maker and a Sweet Hot Yam. She designs licensed fabric for Michael Miller Fabrics from her home in Portland, Oregon. Her newest collection, Madrona Road shiped to stores in July 2012 and her new collection of Distinctive Lifestyle Sewing Patterns will be released in Winter of 2012. Most days she can be found playing on Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and blogging.

The challenge begins December 1 and ends January 31. More details about the challenge will be posted on December 1.

Contact your guild leader to take part in this challenge.

We can’t wit to see what you make!

      • Vicki…think about joining the guild that is closest to you if you can not start a guild. We have a few “satellite” members in our guild…they can make it to maybe one meeting a year, but they participate through our flickr page and our blog and get help and inspiration through those sites and our members!

  1. I am a co-president of the Aberdeen SD MQG and would like to find out more about this. Would you email me with the details?

  2. Oh gosh.. and WHAT did Heather Grant say about “applique” in her talke on Thursday at Quilt Festival… that there’s “probably room for it too” in TMQG’s future! Will join in the fun at my Austin guild.

  4. How do I become a paying member so I can participate? I won a bundle of Madrona Road from the Diary of a Quilter contest, and my next quilt is planned to be made from it.

    Cheers, Meli

  5. I filled out a form for the Dallas MQG thru a link from another member but I have not heard anything back such as a confirmation. I looked for you on Big Tent with no luck. Any help getting a confirmation of our request and how to find you on big tent would be appreciated.

  15. I have been reading about this all over the web, and have been clicking a lot on the Inland Empire Modern Quilt Guild page, but it always says it’s down for maintenance. I’d love to join a modern quilt guild–I have 2 projects done in Madrona Road, but help! I’ve left it too long and need to join tomorrow in order to qualify. What suggestions do you have for those of us not near (or near a functioning) quilt guild?
