March Madness 2018! Nominate your favorite free pattern!

It wouldn't be March without a little bracket fun! Whether you're a basketball fan or not, you can still be part of the March Madness fun with a quilty twist. 
That's right! Our bracket will be packed with the most popular free quilt patterns featuring current fabric collections from our website. You can help choose which ones compete.

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. (And use the links to download your favorite patterns so you can add them to your to-do list!)

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). 
  • Please vote only once per venue (one comment with your three favorites here on the blog and once on our Sew Interesting page).
  • The voting is open through Friday, March 16th at 9:30 am EDT.At that point the voting is closed and we'll tally the results and post later on Friday with the official 2018 Fan Favorite Quilt Bracket, dates and details. 
Voting is now closed! Watch for our Sweet Sixteen announcement.
