More Challenges

After finishing the previous post showing some of the Hoffman 2014 Challenge pieces from Maine Quilts 2015, I thought "I should link back to my post which showed the Hoffman  Challenge pieces from the Florida World Quilt Show." When I looked back to my January posts, I realized I had never shown them, so guess what? I'm showing them today! So these are entries from a different travelling collection of the same 2014 Hoffman Indigo Challenge. I'm sure you will recognize the same featured fabric. Enjoy!

As well as quilts, the annual Hoffman Challenge has categories for both wearable art (clothing) and dolls. Here are a few of the dolls. My photos of them are not that great but I'm sure you can at least appreciate the amount of work in each of these creations The Matador really caught our eye... I apologize for not having the names of each entry, nor their creator's names.   :(
