No Prints Allowed Judges!

Hi everyone,
Jill and Marny of Modern Quilt Relish have agreed to be the judges for our No Prints Allowed Challenge.  Yay!  They are also generously donating a copy of each of their four new patterns as part of our prize.

I hope you all have your creative juices flowing - I can't wait to see what we all come up with.
