2015 CQA/ACC Trend-Tex Challenge

The 2015 Canadian Quilter’s Association (CQA/ACC) Trend-Tex Challenge is now open.

But do you know what the “Trend-Tex Challenge” is?  The people at Trend-Tex Fabrics Inc. donate bolts and bolts of 5 different fabrics. A CQA/ACC member purchases 5 fat quarters, and makes a small wall quilt based on the theme for the year. The quilt is sent to the Vice President of CQA/ACC who puts them on display at the annual Quilt Canada conference. Bidding through a silent auction allows visitors to purchase a quilt or two for their own.

This year’s theme is “Blowing in the Wind”.

The fabrics  for this year’s challenge can be previewed thanks to CQA’s blog (and that photo is copied here)
