There’s no better way to celebrate than joining in on the 35th Annual Hoffman Challenge. Our “Fresh Meadow” batik collection makes up the 2024-2025 Hoffman Challenge Collection.

Participant registration, submissions and initial jurying all take place online, with a panel of certified judges considering all entries. If it is determined that your artwork qualifies for in-person judging, you will be asked to mail it to Hoffman Fabrics. The following is an overview of the general rules, categories, prizes.

For more details, please visit the Hoffman Fabrics’ website where you will find a page dedicated to the contest at

Finalists’ and award winners’ artwork “go on tour” for a year and are displayed in our virtual showroom, the exhibitors may include quilt shows and festivals, museums and libraries, cultural centers, guilds and even some Hoffman retailers.

General Rules

A minimum of 5 out of 14 of the following fabrics are REQUIRED to be in your entry. *please note this is a new rule

A minimum of five of these challenge fabrics must be used in the body of the quilt top or garment in recognizable, but not necessarily equal amounts. While we love when you use Hoffman’s fabrics, we invite you to use fabric from any manufacturer in addition to the required challenge fabrics.

The completion of your online registration, including photos of your artwork (one overall and one close-up) must be submitted by January 15, 2025. You may submit up to three different pieces of artwork with the $30 entry fee (paid online).

The Hoffman Challenge Batik Collection will begin shipping to stores in July 2024 to begin working on your design!

Artwork accepted for final judging, that complies with all of the Hoffman Challenge rules, will be traveling for a year and must be able to withstand multiple shipments. Special packing instructions are NOT accepted! Artwork must be clean and unscented. Cigarette odor, other problematic scents and pet hair may result in disqualifications.

All participants will receive one fat quarter of Hoffman Fabrics and a Hoffman Challenge cloisonné pin to recognize your hard work.
