The 2013 Hoffman Challenge fabric has been chosen. It is K7126 136G “Peacock Gold.” The floral design is a little old-fashioned but I love the colors. Teal, green and gold are a great combo.
I had the pleasure of seeing this year’s Challenge winners at the IQF. The entries included quilts, clothing, accessories and dolls. The total of all four sides of the quilt entries cannot exceed 160 inches, so they are on the small side. I am sure the amount of exhibit space needed to house the winners forces some limits on size. The challenge is also sponsored by Sulky thread. The prizes involve cash…. and a lot of thread.
I am tempted to enter. I just need a few more hours in my day. So, if you love quilting contests, you have until July 19, 2013 to get your entry ready. Click on over to www.hoffmanfabrics.com for more info.
Until next time,
