March Madness 2017! Nominate your favorite pattern!

Happy March! There's a big basketball tournament coming up, and we're celebrating this fun time of year with a bracket that's loaded with quilt patterns rather than basketball teams.  

Be a part of our 2017 Fan Favorite Quilt Bracket!
 This year's bracket will again feature free quilt patterns that showcase our newest fabric lines. 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. Now it's your turn. Help us to narrow these 50 patterns down to 16 to get our bracket started. 


Here's how it works:

  • Look through the quilt patterns featured below and leave a comment listing your favorite three. Please make sure you are listing your votes by pattern name, not fabric collection name. We've also included links to each pattern so you can download your favorites.
  • The same 50 patterns are featured on our "Sew Interesting" Group Facebook page, so you may also vote for your three favorites there if you choose (find details on Facebook voting on those pages). 
  • You can also vote on our Pinterest board! Simply repin your three favorites.
  • Please vote only once per venue (one comment with your three favorites here on the blog, once on our Sew Interesting page, and once on Pinterest).
  • The voting is open through Saturday, March 11th at 11:59 pm EST. At that point the voting is closed and we'll tally the results and be back here on Monday with the official 2017 Fan Favorite Quilt Bracket, dates and details. 

Voting is closed! 

Watch for our Sweet 16 bracket announcement on Monday!
May your favorite pattern win!

  41. NICO is one of the best quilts I've seen using only straight lines to create a curved effect!
    I don't understand the game because I don't watch sports...sorry.
