Well, my quilts are home from the craft show...And I couldn't wait to unpack them to see what comments the judges had to say about them.
I think there were over 300 quilts enterered for judging this year...And this is the second year that I have entered quilts for judging in this big craft show.
I was so excited when my "Aunt Maggies Tulip Quilt" took out first prize in the amateur traditional.
I thought some of you might like to know what sort of things the judges look for in the quilts and what the comments were.
The judges have a list of things which they make comment on...And on this quilt the comments are:
Good use of colour,
Precise piecing, points meeting accurately,
Good choice of quilting design,
Very Appealing1930's style quilt,
but corners could be improved...
On "My Victorian Fan Quilt",there is only one comment:
Good use of embroidery/embellishments.
Then they went on to write:
Good use of imagination, "but would benefit from some quiet spaces".
So there you go!...I think they must have thought it was too busy...I wonder what the judges would have said if they saw the "Encrusted Look"....
On my "Cafe au Lait"
The judges just wrote:
Lots of interesting details.
Mitred corners are a bit tight...
Well, I'm glad I entered the quilts for judging and it's been very interesting to get an unbiased opinion and their comments on my quilts...
