Trend-Tex 2013 Challenge

 CQA/ACC's biggest fundraiser could not happen without the generous people at Trend-Tex Fabrics who donate all the fabric for our Trend-Tex Challenge.   Did you know that this is the 25th anniversary of the Trend-Tex Challenge?   How fun would it be to look back on the past 25 years of challenges and see all the different fabric this wonderful company has donated to CQA/ACC?
This year's theme is 'Sunshine and Vines'.  Very appropriate for the Quilt BC conference being held in Penticton in May 2013.

Come October 1st, members can send in their payment and receive 5 fat quarters of fabric donated by Trend-Tex Fabrics.  Next they create a fabulous wall hanging following the guidelines set out by Vice President Judy Kelly.   The completed quilt is then dropped  in the mail by the due date, and auctioned off at the conference.

Do you want a sneak peak of the fabrics chosen for the next Trend-Tex Challenge?

Do these fabrics not scream creativity and imagination?   Get out your pen and sketch pad and get designing your quilt. You may be the next Trend-Tex Challenge winner!

  1. Oooooo those fabrics are DELICIOUS!!!!!! I am ashamed to say that I have never participated in this challenge.......I WILL be off to the post box with my payment first thing Oct., 1st. :-)

  2. my mind is already filling with ideas for those fabrics - looks like I'll be a first time participant, too!

  3. Interesting theme, delightful fabrics. I admire quilters who can dream up an art quilt to mix the two together. Joanne

  4. Got my fabrics today, but may have to rethink the design I've already drawn in EQ7....the blue is MUCH darker than it appears in the photo!
