It’s Sweet 16 time, dear readers! That’s right — we’re down to our 16 remaining favorite fabric lines and one step closer to crowning our 2012 Modern Madness champion. We had a strong showing in region 4 and, though we’re hesitant to call it an upset because of the strength of Little Apples and Aneela’s proven track record of success in Modern Madness, many readers believed that Curious Nature would go further in the competition. With strong contenders like Curious Nature eliminated from the field, it’s still anyone’s game.

Eager to see who emerged victorious as the four lines that will represent region 4 in the Sweet 16? Let’s take a look at the results …

Echo by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics (309 votes, 70%) def.
Domestic Bliss by Liz Scott for Moda Fabrics (133, 30%)

Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for Moda Fabrics (232 votes, 52%) def.
Curious Nature by David Butler of Parson Gray for Free Spirit Fabrics (210, 48%)

Half Moon Modern by Moda Fabrics (291 votes, 66%) def.
Happy Mochi Yum Yum by Monica Solorio-Snow for Lecien Fabrics (151, 34%)

1001 Peeps by Lizzy House for Andover Fabrics (281 votes, 64%) def.
Across the Pond by Michelle Engel Bencsko for Cloud 9 Organic Fabrics

Scoring: If you had predicted that Echo, Little Apples, Half Moon Modern, or 1001 Peeps would advance to the Sweet 16 in your original brackets, give yourself 2 points for each one. Starting next round, the stakes are getting higher!

And speaking of the next round, let’s let the left side of the bracket take the court. Our first 8 teams are in action today to kick off our regional battles. Who will advance to the Elite 8?
