Jay McCarroll visit and a challenge

Jay McCarroll, fabric designer and 1st Season winner of Project Runway came to speak at our PMQG meeting last night. Let me tell you, it was a fun night. He's really quite funny and very easy going. It was great to hear him talk about his line Habitat and of course about his time on Project Runway.

He showed off a couple of projects like this quilt made at Spool.

And these fabulous pillows.

And a really great skirt made out of Habitat.

He was also there to announce the start of the Habitat Challenge. We all got our fabrics to make an original block.

I'm not really a designer, it seems everything I try to design has already been done! But I've got a few ideas going that I'm going to try out. And I just hope they aren't already done somewhere!

I bet you will come up with something beautiful, Becky. Can you use other fabrics, or just the Habitat line?

Awesome! How fun! I love that someone from one of my favorite shows has crossed over into the world of my favorite hobby. : )
