It's March...Time to Pick the Fan Favorite Quilt!

Yep, it's that time of year! March Madness isn't only about basketball--here at Sew in Love with Fabric, we've made it about one of our favorite topics--quilts! This year's Fan Favorite Quilt Bracket will feature free quilt patterns that showcase our newest fabric line. Use your vote to help your favorite pattern(s) win and advance through the bracket.

Our in-house Selection Committee has chosen 50 free quilt patterns from our website, featuring Benartex, Contempo Studio and Kanvas fabric collections. It's your job, as the quilt-loving voting public, to narrow those 50 patterns down to 16 to get our bracket started. 


**The nomination voting is now closed. We'll be announcing the Sweet Sixteen bracket soon and voting will begin on Monday, March 16, so check back then!**

Here's how it works:



  • Look through the quilt patterns featured below and leave a comment listing your favorite three. Note: You need to list your votes by pattern name (not fabric collection name) as some collections have more than one quilt featured. We've also included links to each pattern so you can download your favorites.
  • The same 50 patterns are featured on our Facebook page and on our  "Sew Interesting" Group pageso you may also vote for your three favorites in those spots if you choose (find details on Facebook voting on those pages). Please vote only once per venue (one comment with your three favorites here on the blog, once on our Facebook page and once on our Sew Interesting page).
  • The voting is open through Thursday, March 12th at 10 am EST. At that point the voting is closed and we'll tally the results and be back here on Monday with the official 2015 Fan Favorite Quilt Bracket, dates and details. 


May your favorite pattern win!
