March Modern Fabric Madness

Okay, this is fun.

I made my picks today in Fat Quarterly’s March Modern Fabric Madness, a quilter’s take on the NCAA bracket. My final four are Central Park, Sherbet Pips, It’s a Hoot and Echino.

As is with the basketball version, I’m hoping my unassuming guessing prowess will prevail. Every March Madness season, I typically beat my husband, or any other basketball fan, because I make my selections based purely on stats and leave my emotions out of it. I know zero about sports, and could care less who wins.

Although I definitely have my favorites in this competition, I went with what I’ve noticed to be the fabric buzz in the blogosphere and sometimes took into account the number of results for a Google Images search of each line.

Are you playing along, and what’s your strategy? Round 1 voting starts tomorrow, March 2, at Fat Quarterly! Download your bracket and check out the official rules, here.
