Fabric Challenges

Riley Blake Fabric Challenge

The challenge is now full! To participate, we encourage you to purchase fabric from your local quilt shop or from an online retailer. We will post a list of shops carrying the Riley Blake Challenge fabric soon. Thanks!


Welcome to the 2019 Riley Blake Fabric Challenge!

This year for the first time, we’re collaborating with an MQG member, Christopher Thompson! We're featuring prints from his new Riley Blake basics collection, Blossom, and Christopher helped select this year’s color palette. Our featured fabrics include Shades Robin1/8" Stripe Denim*, Blossom Baby Pink, and Blossom on White Navy.

*A previous version of this page wrongly listed 1/8" Stripe Navy as the featured stripe. Submissions using either the Denim or Navy stripe will be accepted.

The deadline for submissions was May 31, 2019, and is now closed. The top ten finalists will be displayed at Garden of Quilts in Lehi, Utah, Sep. 12–14, 2019. Check out Riley Blake’s website for more information!

Special thank you to Riley Blake Designs for hosting another great challenge!
