2020 TrendTex Challenge

The TrendTex Challenge is an annual event that takes place at every Quilt Canada Conference; this being  the 32nd year. 

Participants purchase the selected 5-fabric fat quarter bundle, produce a quilt and then donate it to the Association through a silent auction throughtout the Conference.  This year we've gone virtual!

TrendTex 2020 Challenge Winner

Artist's Statement:

Stacking drugstore magnifiers with prescription lenses so I could stitch while watching TV made me yearn for my youth when I had 2020 vision.  I've since invested in bifocals, but will never stop wishing for 2020 vision!

Techniques Used:

Drawing by machine using freemotion stitches, machine quilting, raw edge applique, hand stitches.



We had 77 pieces submitted this year; 76 of which are now available for bidding online and EVERYONE can particpate (including non-CQA members).  Entry #36 has been removed from the bidding as this entry, entitled Wishing for 2020 Vision, by Carole Gold was the winning quilt in this challenge and donated to TrendTex to thank them for their generous contribution of the fabrics.
