As Vice President, I was the lucky gal who got to pick the theme and the fabric for the 2014 Trend-Tex Challenge. And just for kickers added a new category! All details will be inside your newsletter and also posted on our website on September 1st.
It might cause a bit of excitement if you got to see what the fabric, found out the new category and the theme a little ahead of time, right? If you think so, then let's get this Trend-Tex party started!
You may have noticed a trend in modern quilting that has been cropping up everywhere. I thought it might be fun to jump on the band wagon and have a theme titled 'Modern Ways'. It is left to your interpretation, so if you are not into the modern quilting, then have a go at your own spin on the theme. It is all about having a good time as a Canadian quilter!
Here is what arrived at my doorstep in June from Trend-Tex Fabrics.
35 luscious bolts of bright, beautiful fabric! All mine for the cutting, and yours for the quilting.
Tell me you are not a little curious about that striped one? Why did I choose that particular fabric to go with all those gorgeous solids? I'll tell you, because there isn't one CQA/ACC quilter that I have met that doesn't have a little bit of craziness to them. Not one! So that piece is in there for YOU.
So you don't die of curiosity, here is a shot of the fat quarter opened up.
Are you as excited as I am? And I haven't even told you the super fun part yet. The part about the newly created category. Here it is - a Quilted Wearable Category! I can already hear your mind turning over the possibilities.
Whether you have entered every Trend-Tex Challenge CQA/ACC has ever had, or never entered one before, this one is going to be a blast! Looking forward to seeing your work of art.
