Mix and Match Quiz: Day 1

We're in Pittsburgh through the weekend for Spring Quilt Market. We'll be unveiling all of our new Benartex, Kanvas and Contempo fabric lines to quilt shop owners and designers at the show, but we didn't want you to miss out on the fun! 

We've come up with a game you can play from home while also giving you a peek at some of our upcoming fabric collections: the Mix and Match Quiz! 

Each day through Monday we'll be showing you a focal print from a new collection. We'll also be sharing five potential coordinating prints.

Here's where you get to play fabric designer. While many of the prints we show you will appear to coordinate with the focal print, only ONE of the prints is actually from the same collection. You might think they all work together, and they could--that's the beauty of coordinating prints--they work well with many designs!

Your job: send an email to socialmedia23 (at) identifying the number of the print you think is the actual coordinate in the subject line. From each day's emails, we'll randomly choose one person to win a fat quarter bundle of that day's fabric line. (And the best part is, you don't have to guess correctly to win--you just have to guess!) Each contest will be open for 24 hours, from 12 noon EST on the day it's posted until 11:59 am EST the following day. 

Next week we'll post the correct answers for all five quizzes, as well as the winners' names.

Take a look at the first Mix and Match Quiz swatches and then we'll recap the rules for you below.

 Option #1:

Option #2:

Option #3:

Option #4:

Option #5:

Rule recap:

  • Look at the focal print shown. From the five potential coordinating prints shown, choose the number that you think is part of the same collection as the focal print.
  • Send an email to socialmedia23 (at) with the subject line of "Day 1" and then your guess (for example: Day 1 - #1, or Day 1 - #5).
  • The contest for Day 1 will be open from Thursday, May 15 at 12 noon EST through Friday, May 16 at 11:59 EST. Only entries received within that time period will be eligible for the drawing. 
  • Next week, we'll randomly select a winner from each day's quiz answers (you don't have to guess correctly to win), as well as share the correct answers to each quiz. Winners will receive a fat quarter bundle of that day's collection.
  • The Day 2 quiz will be posted at 12 noon on Friday, May 16, and so on, through Monday. 
  • If you have a question, leave a comment below.
Have fun and good luck!

  1. Day one #5

  2. Wow - great prints! Love, love the focal print we have to match. I am not going to go with my first instinct because I am usually wrong that way. So, I'm going to go with option 2. I think it's because it has so many of the colors in the floral print and would be a great contrast to it! Thanks for the fun contest.
