Close races seem to be the name of the game so far in Modern Madness 2012! Fresh off a battle that was decided by one vote in Region 1, Region 2 didn’t disappoint with its own photo finish. Only 4 votes separated Daisy Janie’s Shades of Grey and Emily Herrick’s Going Coastal — wow! Moda Fabrics is well represented in Region 2 with California Girl, Ruby, and Terrain joining Shades of Grey as our region favorites. California Girl was helped by a late, strong surge by the recently mobilized Fig Tree fans. We LOVE to see this kind of excitement and passion during Modern Madness. Want to see your favorites advance? We suggest you might try the same!

Scoring: Once again, if your original brackets had any of these 4 winning teams advancing into the 3rd round, give yourself 2 points for each. (That is, if you originally had predicted that California Girl, Ruby, Shades of Grey, or Terrain would moving on to round 3, you get 2 points for each.) Add this to your total score and let us know how you did in the comments below!

With all this nail-biting action, I can’t wait to see what happens in the other half of our bracket. Let’s get started by heading over to Region 3 …
