This year the theme is 'ROOTS'. Five fabrics must be used in a small quilt to qualify for the prizes. You can add more, but you won't be in line for prizes. To enter, you must be a CQA member. Here is the link the last years quilts http://www.canadianquilter.com/events/index_events_ttc2008.htm
The quilts you make are donated to CQA and become a fundraiser when they are auctioned at the National Juried Show that will be held in Saskatoon in 2009. http://www.canadianquilter.com/events/index_events_quiltcanada2009.htm
I made a little quilt and cut it into 6 postcards. I used all the fabrics. The blue fabric was altered with iridescent Shiva stick to become the dark 'earth'. The postcards were a small gift to the CQA board members to get everyone thinking about the challenge. As a board member I don't qualify for a prize - so, it is okay for you to see my design. But ... be sure to keep yours secret! Postcards #1 and #2
Postcards #3 and #4
Note: do not cut your quilt up!
Leave your quilt whole!
