Best Friends Forever (BFF) - Member Challenge

Another member challenge, called Best Friends Forever (or BFF) is underway. We'd like to see how you interpret this theme in quilt form. Who or maybe what are your "Best Friends". What kind of things do you do/share together? Show us your quilts depicting your best friend(s).
PS this challenge is open to individual and professional members of CQA/ACC.

  Your amazing quilt entries will get published on our blog or in The Canadian Quilter magazine and you might win a fabulous prize too. Thanks to our great sponsor - Sue Aylseworh of Quilting Confections of Windsor, ON.
Our judge will select a first, second and third prize. 
**** (see below for prizes)
Deadline to receive quilt picture(s): December 5, 2014.

 How to Enter:
Send photos of your quilt, any size and any shape, based on the theme “Best Friends Forever”. It must be quilted and bound or closed along the edges. You can use any embellishments. 
Take high resolution (1 MB) digital pictures of your quilt. (see Tips below)
You should take 2 pictures - one of your quilt and one of a close up of a small area. Then email them to: along with your CQA/ACC membership number, name, email address, a brief description of your quilt, and any copyright information.


 By entering your quilt(s), you are giving CQA/ACC permission to use your entry. This includes archival records for CQA/ACC, all aspects of CQA/ACC online social media, The Canadian Quilter magazine and/or other publications and advertisements created by CQA/ACC. The image will not be shared beyond these areas unless permission is requested of CQA/ACC and it is shown that the requester intends to use the image to promote CQA/ACC.

Tips on Photographing:

Use a well lit area. Have no background distractions. Take a high resolution photo of at least 1 MB jpeg.  Ensure that no part of the quilt is cut off in the picture. Hang your quilt on a wall to take this photo (for best results). Also include a close up of a small area.
