Fabric Friday – Riley Blake Color Variety Bundles

I’m super excited about the new Riley Blake color variety bundles! These are precut bundles available as fat quarters, rolie polies, layer cakes, and yardage bundles. They come in a rainbow of juicy colors with modern geometric designs.

The Modern Quilt Guild Fabric Challenge with Riley Blake Fabrics

Since I am a self-proclaimed cheerleader for all things modern, I thought I would announce the start of the 3rd annual MQG fabric challenge featuring Riley Blake fabrics.

Here are the fabrics entrants will receive when they sign up, a set of Riley Blake basics that can be mixed and matched with other solids and Riley Blake printed fabrics.

You know I love a good challenge so I’m definitely in on this one. Now here’s the catch – you must be a member of the Modern Quilt Guild to enter, but then you get the fabric for free, so how cool is that?

Fabric sign-up ends August 31st and the challenge entries are due in December 2013 (no specific date set yet). Hmm… time to get my designer thinking cap on now!
