Madrona Road Challenge

We had a nice time at the sew in meeting held Dec. 1st.  Thank you to everyone who came out and braved the first bit of weather this winter!

We distributed the fabric for the Madrona Road Challenge at the meeting.  Michael Miller provided enough for each of our 12 participants to receive a fat eighth of 6 prints and one coordinating solid.  Peg from Sew Fresh Fabrics provided a fat eighth of the farm and pick up truck print on the top of the stack to round out the collection.  Thank you Peg! For this challenge, we decided to limit ourselves to pillow covers. You may make a pillow cover of any size or shape using this collection. If you want to add more fabric, you may only use solids or other prints from the Madrona Road collection. Both Peg and Becca have these prints available in their shops if you would like to support your fellow guild members. The challenge ends January 31st. If you have a blog or Flickr account, please go ahead and share pictures of your project at that time. We will share the projects at our February 2nd meeting and will take pictures at that time to share for those who do not have blogs.

We will vote on our favorite pillow at the meeting in February and award a prize!
