Bring the Joy with Here Comes the Fun: A Modern Quilt Challenge

Hi there, Quilters and Makers!

With spring around the corner, it’s time to make bright and colorful quilts for the upcoming season! This is why we’ve prepared a challenge for you to rev up your sewing machines. We’re happy to kick start the “Bring the Joy with Here Comes the Fun” modern quilt challenge! Since Sew Caroline’s newest collection, Here Comes the Fun is all about happy lyrics and the beautiful art that fills many cities combined with fun designs, we thought it would be great for making bright modern quilts. Plus, the colors of this collection are great for spring!

We were inspired to make this challenge because in just a few days we’ll be attending Quiltcon in Savannah, GA. This is the largest modern quilt show of its kind and it’s filled with all kinds of quilting inspiration and competitions. For our booth theme we’ve decided to dedicate it to the Arts District located in Miami (Wynwood) and we’re calling it the “Quilt District.” We thought it would be fun to host our own modern quilt competition for those of you who aren’t able to attend the show. Since, “Here Comes the Fun” is all about the beauty of street art, you’ll be able to bring a bit of the Quilt District to your home with this challenge.

Are you up for this challenge? Here’s the scoop on how to enter:

If you would like to participate in this challenge, you will need to make a 40” x 60” modern quilt (or larger) that is made mostly with Here Comes the Fun Fabrics by Sew Caroline. You may mix and match blenders/ solids into your quilt as long as they are from AGF (the whole quilt must be made with AGF to be considered). And yes, you are allowed to use a pre-made quilt pattern. When coming up with your design, think color blocking, negative space, geometric designs, etc. If you are stuck we have prepared a Pinterest board for you to get some inspiration. You have full creative freedom and “modern” is open to interpretation, so let your creativity guide you!


You can submit a hi-res image of your quilt to with your name, the name of your quilt, and a description of your design. The images will be shared on a Pinterest board titled, “Here Comes the Fun Quilt Challenge” and people will be able to vote for their favorite quilts by pinning them. Submissions will be opened until May 31st.


Voting on Pinterest will be open from June 1st to June 12th. The quilts with the most votes/pins will be the winners. We will announce three winners (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) on the blog and we will contact them personally by email.

Make sure to take bright, sharp, pretty pictures of your projects so that they can be showed off in the best way possible!
