New Challenge for CMQG: Habitat by Jay McCarroll & Free Spirit Fabrics

This week the National Modern Quilt Guild announced a new challenge for the Modern Quilt Guilds.
In this challenge we will use fabric provided by Free Spirit Fabrics. The line of fabric is " Habitat" by designer Jay McCarroll. Please visit to see swatches of this line. There is also a free quilt pattern online using Habitat fabric.
We do not have the dates of this challenge nor the exact amount of fabric to be provided by Free Spirit. I will keep you informed when we hear more from national.
If you missed the sign up sheet Thursday or were not this month's meeting, please email me & I will add you to the list. We have 23 signed up so far. The Kona Challenge was a lot of fun & I'm sure this one will be also.
