Modern Madness: Join The Fun!

March Madness. The time of year when Americans go crazy over filling out tournament brackets to see if they can pick the NCAA college basketball championship team.  Well, if you are not much of a basketball fan and more of a fabric fan, then Fat Quarterly has just the challenge for you. Each year, they coordinate what's called Modern Madness where fabric lovers, like me, can fill out tournament style brackets for the most popular fabric lines of the past year. You can download and fill out your own bracket here. Participation is just for fun. The first round of voting begins today and will continue through April 8th.

If you aren't familiar with all the fabric lines, I suggest doing a Google Images search, but Fat Quarterly will also be posting links where you can view the collections. I have to admit, there were some tough choices to be made. There were so many great fabric lines from the past year. For me, it was close for the Madrona Road collection by Violet Craft, but in the end, I picked Pearl Bracelets to take it all. I just love this fabric line. It is simple, but versatile, and there are so many colors from which to choose. Below is just a sampling. It is definitely a stash staple.

Collection: Pearl Bracelets
Designer: Lizzy House
Manufacturer: Andover 
Will you be participating? What fabric line did you choose as this year's champion?
