Hoffman Challenge

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to participate in the Hoffman Challenge.  Lo and behold, Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium stocked the required fabrics for the 2015 event.  How awesome;  it takes one off the old bucket list...The fabric collection is called Mandalay; the one on top below is the main one to be used.  Gold and pomegranate.
The rules are quite flexible so I paired a couple of other Hoffman prints with the line, which added both silver and gold sparkle.
One of the sponsors of the challenge is Aurifil Thread so I ordered some from Bytowne Threads to use in the piecing and quilting.  
The deadline is very generous and the completed project is not due until July so I have lots of time to enjoy the process.


  1. Certainly looking forward to seeing THIS finished project!

  2. Those fabrics are very rich......the finished project will look a million dollars!

  3. That's going to be pretty. That main fabric is very busy, with lots of different ways to go with it. Will be fun to see what you do.

  4. Good for you for taking up the Challenge! I saw this past years Hoffman Challenge in Fl. last month. The fabric was similar- very busy. The pieces were very "interesting"...
