It’s back! It’s time for another Fat Quarter Idol Contest. Use Pinterest to combine 12 fabrics from Sew,Mama,Sew! to create a Fresh fat quarter pack!

Winners are promoted and fully credited here on the blog, and we’ll sell your pack in the shop. We also send you one of your packs for free! Submit the URL to your Pinterest board for a “Fresh” pack of fabric in the comments of this post by Thursday, 3/7. We’re looking for fresh, clean, fun, spring-y + happy picks to move us out of winter to sunshine, flowers and more.

Looking for a little Fresh inspiration? Check out these fun fabrics: Happy Tones, Color Me Retro, Summersville Spring, Posy
