Another region completed, and another near-tie! Washi ekes out a win over Aviary 2 by a mere 5 votes. With races this close, it’s already hard to predict which line might be the 2012 Modern Madness champion. Who do you think is going to emerge as our readers’ top line this year? Let us know in the comments below!

Also, we want to thank all of you who have truly embraced the friendly and collegial spirit of Modern Madness. To be clear, we love ALL of the fabric lines and designers that are part of Modern Madness. They’re all all-stars! The intent of Modern Madness is not to make any statements about who is better than whom; rather, it’s to celebrate modern fabric in all its glory, and to continue to expose our readers to designers and lines of which they may not have previously been aware. We love hearing comments resembling “Thank you so much for introducing me to this fabric line — I hadn’t heard of it before, and now I need to add some to my stash!” We appreciate your efforts to continue making Modern Madness a fun, friendly, and supportive activity.
