Women's Institute Challenge Fabric 2014-15
NFWI/Makower Challenge Fabric 2014-15
The Color Collection by Makower UK
2015 marks the centenary of the Women's Institute. To celebrate, the NFWI has set its members the challenge to make a quilt, wall hanging or wearable item, inspired by the WI’s upcoming centenary and using the Color Collection range from Makower UK. Full details of the Challenge, including timescales, how to enter, the prizes on offer, and other rules can be found here.
Your quilt/wallhanging must be an original design and can be of any shape, provided the overall length/width does not exceed one metre. It must contain a minimum of 50% of Makower ‘Color Collection’ fabric on the face of the work using one or more of the six fabrics the NFWI has chosen for this Challenge.
Here you can browse all six of the Makower UK Color Collection fabrics chosen for the Centenary Challenge. We have also included below one other fabric from the Color Collection as we think this one works nicely as an accent fabric alongside the others. Please note that fabric code 7485-R (the red one) is not part of the challenge collection. It is on this web page simply as a suggestion to complement the six actual challenge fabrics.
All these fabrics are standard width fabric (110/112cms, 44/45ins) priced per half metre. Enter the number of half metres you require in the quantity box, then click 'Add to Cart', i.e. order 2 quantities for 1 metre, 3 quantities for 1.5m, etc. Your fabric will always be cut as one length from the bolt.
We have also prepared three different sample packs of the six Challenge fabrics. We have one pack that contains half a metre of each of the six Challenge fabrics, one that contains a fat quarter of each of the six fabrics, and one that contains 25cm of each of the six fabrics.
