Hoffman Challenge 2011-Follow Up

This blog post is an update on the 2011 Hoffman Challenge. My piece "Tahitiana" has been selected as part of the traveling tour for 2011-2012. YEAH!!! It is in Group C and when I looked at the current schedule this group will be at the International Quilting Assoc.( IQA) shows in Long Beach CA, Cinncinati OH and a variety of other shows. I like this because many people will view the quilts. In about a month Hoffman will annouce the Challenge fabric for 2012 and I can see if I like the fabric and then I can "challenge" myself to a new quilt. This photo is a close up of Tahitiana's face. I was challenged by the fact that I couldn't glam her up with glitter eyeliner and jewelry etc. because she was fresh faced and on the beach. So I had to let go of the "photo shoot/everything is perfect look!"  I hope the Challenge tours are well received and Hoffman continues to do this. www.hoffmanchallenge.com
