Chanukah Special Day 3

Sorry for the late post. I had to check out a quilt shop in St. Louis that just carries batiks. It is a huge warehouse with every piece of Hoffman batiks that they make!!! It was overwhelming. Luckily I had just gone to the bank and cashed in all my coins so I had money to spend! Of course I spent it (well not all of it, I had to save some for dinner that I picked up on the way home). I could have spent all day there but then I wouldn't have any money left at all.

So since I went to the shop I decided that today's special will be the Hoffman Challenge 2016 fabric (which just came in yesterday). It is made with a new digital process (that I don't understand). Your regular quilt shop fabrics can have up to 18 colors printed on them in the factory. With the digital process the number of colors is infinite!! The colors on these type of fabrics is unbelievably beautiful. The first two are the challenge fabrics. You can use one or both but they have to be used in the quilt. The other two fabrics are coordinating prints. They do not have to be used in the challenge quilt (but they certainly are pretty). Click on the caption under the fabric to find it on my website.

I decided that just for today I would have this fabric on sale for $12.00. I know that sounds like a lot. Due to the new process of printing these fabrics they usually sell for $13.50. So if you would like to participate in the challenge or just purchase them because they are so pretty, in order to get this price you need to purchase it before midnight tonight. These fabrics are very soft to the touch.

If you want more information regarding the challenge you can find it here: Hoffman Challenge

Gotta always: Do what you love and love what you do.

The fabric for the Hoffman challenge this year makes up for the disaster of a fabric from last year. Happy Chanukah Toby.

Oh my those fabrics are gorgeous! I love butterflies, too. Not sure I would be able to make anything worthy of being in the challenge, but I would love to try!

I'm glad you had a great time at the Batik store!

Happy Chanukah to you!

These would look so great with some of the batiks I have in my stash - must go to the LQS and see if they have it in yet! Thanks for the heads up

I love Hoffman Fabrics from their prints to batiks. I can't imagine being in a warehouse full of their fabrics.

I love these fabrics! they look so vibrant and rich and I'm sure they are more so in person. The Crystalia 4242 Rainbow is on my want list.
