Are you familiar with Jay McCarrol’s “Habitat” fabric line? It recently won the Modern Madness Challenge hosted by Fat Quarterly. Well lucky for us, Free Spirit Fabrics is hosting a little challenge for our Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild (and other participating guilds) where they will send us six fat-eigths per member of the line, and we are each challenged to create something using the Habitat fabrics and any coordinating solids we choose. We’ve decided to open our challenge up to crafts beyond just quilts, so I’m looking forward to seeing what the other members create – pillows? bags? We shall see! I’m thinking I’ll probably still try and make a quilt of some size.

We’re currently working on a Kona Solids Quilt Challenge that I’ll be happy to write about at the end of June, after we reveal our quilts to each other at our highly anticipated next meeting.
