TrendTex Fabrics, Inc. is once again generously donating beautiful fabrics for CQA/ACC’s 33rd annual wall quilt challenge with the theme Friendship. Get in on the fun of this long-lasting tradition. What will your quilt look like?
Your design may be modern or traditional and any combination of machine and/or hand piecing, appliqué or quilting is acceptable; embellishments are at the quilter’s discretion. All five of the fabrics in the kit shown above must be clearly visible on the front of your wall quilt and you may add three additional fabrics of your own choosing. Quilts will be judged on general appearance, design, workmanship and the use of the challenge fabric.
To join the challenge, request the kit (five TrendTex fabrics cut into fat quarters) using the online order form and paying for it using the shopping cart. The Kit Order Form will be available to members beginning October 1, 2020 and to non-members November 1, 2020. If you prefer to mail in your form with payment, please print the order form from the website when it becomes available, complete it, and send it along with with a cheque, money order (payable to CQA/ACC) or credit card payment (members: $25, non-members: $30), plus applicable taxes to:
Irene Lafleche, CQA/ACC Director at Large
223 Castlegarth Crescent
Nepean, ON K2J 5N6
Mailed request letters from members interested in purchasing a kit are to be postmarked no earlier than October 1, 2020. Non-members may purchase a kit after November 1, 2020. Until January 1, 2021, there is a limit of one kit per person; additional kits may be purchased after that date, if available.
All wall quilts will become the property of CQA/ACC and be displayed at Quilt Canada 2021 in June. As a gesture of thanks, the TrendTex award-winning wall quilt will be given to TrendTex Fabrics, Inc. and all others will be sold at our popular silent auction.
The TrendTex Challenge Entry Form form will be available online December 1, 2020. Get your entry in by April 5, 2021 in order to be eligible for judging. If you wish to donate a quilt for the silent auction fundraiser without having it judged it must be received by May 27, 2021. We welcome all wall quilts and look forward to seeing and displaying your challenges in Toronto.
