Quilt Canada 2010 Part 2

The Trend Tex Challenge, one of the national shows that can be seen each year at the annual CQA Conference, is a fundraiser for CQA. Fabrics are generously donated by Trend Tex Fabrics; they are cut up and packaged into kits which are sold to members and the public. Each person gets the same five fabrics, 1/4 meter of each. Quilted wallhangings are made on the chosen theme and donated back to CQA, then are sold by silent auction at the Conference.

The pieces are judged and prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, as well as the Trend Tex Award- this piece is given back to Trend Tex Fabrics to hang in their Board Office. Each of the three judges get to choose their favourite for a Judges Choice Award, and the viewers vote for their favourite to win the Viewers Choice Award, announced at the close of show. Shown here are the three Judges Choice awards. Above, right is It's a Lovely Night for a Noontrance by Kate Madeloso of Halifax NS. At left is We Must Reach for the Stars by Anna Hergert of Moose Jaw SK. At right, is Up,Up and Away by Joanne Love of Whitehorse YK.
Coming next are the other TTC prize winners....
Victory comes by looking up, not back.
