I first saw the Hoffman Challenge at my guild's quilt show when I first joined the Capital Quilters Guild. It was an eye-opener for me. I was still buying my fabric at local chain stores, and was not familiar with the gorgeous Hoffman line of fabrics. The quilts were unlike anything I had seen in the quilting world.
There are four traveling exhibits each year, selected from the entries in the Hoffman Challenge. One of them was at Hampton Roads for the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. The 2011 fabric was a lovely Oriental floral that produced some fabulous finished pieces.

I thought the artwork in this piece was amazing. What great perspective and dimensionality, not to mention a very clever idea.

I really loved all the Hoffman entries.
