The Hoffman Challenge was started in 1988. You can read all about it on their website which is full of details, including the calendar for each group of traveling quilts, as well as a full list of names and where they are from. There are multiple categories for entry, from dolls to clothing to quilts. Each entry receives a pin unique to that year. The top winners receive cash prizes.

Karen fussy cut the set of four patches in each of the nine blocks. To see all of Karen's previous entries in the Hoffman Challenge, visit her website here.
