March Madness—Quilter Style

ROUND 2

Tuesday, 3/19/2019

Have you been playing along with our Quilt March Madness bracket this year? It’s the first year we’ve brought the breathtaking excitement of March Madness to our quilting community and everyone has been truly enjoying it. If you’re just joining in the fun, it’s not too late! Here’s how it works…

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Participate in the quilt bracket (see “HOW TO PLAY THE BRACKET”) to predict the winning quilt pattern—the winning pattern will be offered as a FREE digital download once the bracket is complete. After you’ve filled out your quilt bracket, use your prediction to enter a drawing for a quilt kit (see “ENTER TO WIN”—one of the two contests is now closed). It’s a ton of fun to vote for your favorite “team” and the anticipation of which one might win is almost too much to take!

ROUND 1

Friday, 3/15/2019

This time of year there is a phenomenon that sweeps the country. From coast to coast people sit entranced by the athletic trials of college basketball players. I grew up in Storrs, Connecticut—home of the UConn Huskies, so March Madness was a big celebration. The fun of filling out a bracket, the thrill of a close game—will your team make it through?

While I was growing up UConn was the team to beat. You couldn’t walk around town without spotting college kids with their faces painted, and we even indulged in some temporary tattoos to show our support! Regardless of which team you support the energy and celebratory spirit of March Madness is contagious!

This year we’ve decided to bring the breathtaking excitement of March Madness to our quilting community in the form of a quilt pattern bracket! Here’s how it works…

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Participate in the quilt bracket (see “HOW TO PLAY THE BRACKET”) to predict the winning quilt pattern—the winning pattern will be offered as a FREE digital download once the bracket is complete. After you’ve filled out your quilt bracket, use your prediction to enter two separate drawings for two different quilt kits (see “ENTER TO WIN”). It’s a ton of fun to vote for your favorite “team” and the anticipation of which one might win is almost too much to take!
