It's time for another Fave Fabric Friday. This time I was browsing the new arrivals on Fabric.com and spotted Shine On! from the Hoffman Spectrum Digital Print collection of fabrics. 

Shine On is a fun gemstones fabric collection by Hoffman Fabrics. There's also a design challenge using these fabrics with prizes for categories such as quilting, apparel, accessories and use of Aurifil thread. How cool!

The words 2018 Design Challenge caught my eye and I wondered what that was all about. A quick Google later, and I discovered that it's the 30th year that Hoffman Fabrics have had a design challenge. There are prizes in the following categories:

  • Quilting
  • Clothing
  • Accessories (handbag, hat, jewellery, shoes)
  • Best use of Aurifil Thread

Winning projects will also be part of a travelling exhibit. You are required use at least 75% Hoffman fabrics and use one of these fabrics (or both) in a clearly recognisable amount: 

Shine On Gemstone fabric - these are the feature fabrics for the 2018 Hoffman Design Challenge.

Those multi-gems are soooo pretty! But I can't decide if the bias ombre in Aurora and Sunset are even prettier!

Facets All Over is a pretty coordinate (or would look lovely by itself) in colours Diamond, Tanzanite, Sea Glass and Fuchsia.

And the last two prints in the collection are Tossed Jems and Jem Floral Jewels.
