Hoffman Challenge Entries

2011 Hoffman Challenge Entry


This year, I modified one of the patterns from my book, Panel Passion, for the Hoffman Challenge.  I learned a valuable lesson when making this quilt.  As you can see from the detail shots, I heavily quilted the two large triangle pieces that are the challenge fabric.  

The quilting 'pull
ed' the quilt out of square, making it bunch up, and it hung wavy and uneven at the bottom.  Because I finished my quilting on the last possible day to get this out in the mail for the Challenge, I didn't have time to block it.  So, because of my own procrastination, this quilt was rejected by the judges.  




Dinky Doku - 2009 Entry






Each of the 81 numbers are actually separate Inchie quilts, attached to the background with Velcro brand hook and loop tape, so the puzzle can actually be worked.  This is my second entry in the Hoffman Challenge, and I'm so proud to report that both have been accepted for the traveling show.  

 

˜Struttin' in the Garden - 2008 Entry






This is the first quilt I have ever entered in any kind of show.  I was so excited when I received word that it was accepted for the 2008 travelling show!  This quilt is now back safe at home, happily hanging in my living room.
