The Hoffman Challenge began in 1988 with 94 enthusiastic quilters. Not only have entries grown to over 700 some years, the Challenge has also added separate competitions for clothing and handmade dolls. The quilt categories in this collection include applique, pieced and mixed technique. While the majority of entries come from the United States, a wide variety of international entries are also received each year.
