The fabrics for the 2009 Trend Tex Challenge through The Canadian Quilter's Association (CQA) arrived some time back. As the deadline is too quickly approaching, it's time to give some thought as to how to puzzle these pieces together. The theme this year is "Roots" and that has been ricocheting around my brain; lots of possibilities have been visited, but nothing settled on as yet. The fabrics are a varied assortment of floral print, stripe and tone-on-tones. Three are from Michael Miller, one is a Jinny Beyer and the dreamy blue is "Gypsy Princess" by Hoffman. The deadline for the quilts to arrive in Alberta is mid-March, so hopefully inspiration will hit soon. This is my 8th or 9th year participating in this challenge, and it's always lots of fun to see the entries. If you are interested in seeing the construction of my piece last year ("From The Edge") just scroll back through Older Posts at the bottom of this screen.
