The TrendTex Challenge is an annual CQA/ACC event with a long and rich history. Each year participants purchase a fat quarter bundle of five fabrics curated by TrendTex, make a wall quilt and then donate it to the Association to be shared at a silent auction that is held throughout our Quilt Canada Conference.
This year we have the privilege of hosting a special auction of the top winners from the last five TrendTex Challenges (2016 to 2020). Each of these quilts won their first place title over approximately 90 other entrants and were gifted to TrendTex Fabrics until the end of last year. You now have the opportunity to own one of these beautiful pieces of art by participating in this online auction from April 7 to 11, 2021. Want a sneak peek? All of the quilts are available for viewing on the Bidding Owl site.
How the Online Auction Works
Bidding opens at 7am EDT on Wednesday, April 7, with the opening bid for each piece at $50, unless there has been an advanced bid. Bid on any quilt in $5 increments – as many quilts as you like, as often as you like.
Shipping to Canada and the United States is included in your bid price along with the HST, if applicable; 5% GST will be calculated and added prior to payment. All bidding will close on Sunday, April 11, at 5:00pm EDT.
