Judge’s Comments

One of the interesting pieces about entering a quilt in the fair is that it is a judged exhibit. Here’s the judge’s comments on my quilt. What do you think?

Playful Pollinators, Wall Hanging, Hand Quilted category, 1st and Best of Show

“Uneven placement of blocks is well balanced. Embellished running stitch outlines gives definition to floral elements. Placid elements generally well handled. Sashiko stiches generally well handled. Change in color of thread appreciated. Binding generally well handled.” Maybe I should change the name to Generally!

Lodore Quilt, Wall Hanging, Artistic, 3rd Place

Canyon of Lodore, Green River. Wall Hanging, Artistic category - 3rd place.

“Color palette is visually pleasing and well coordinated. Balance between sky and earth is successful and waterflow invites the view in. Strive for consistency in stitch length. Binding technique generally well done.”

This afternoon I visited with Roberta and other quilt ladies at the Tri-County Fair Quilt Show. What fun to look and talk about quilts with other quilters. And guess what? I got a Best of Show! For Hand Quilting with my Playful Pollinators quilt.

Playful Pollinators, hand sketched, hand embroidered, hand dyed fabric, hand quilted.

And here were a few more that were lovely and inspiring. Enjoy!

Tri-County Fair Time!

This morning dropped off two quilts for the Tri-County Fair quilt show. Fair time! I can’t wait to go Thursday night, and see all the fabulous creations the Eastern Sierra women create. And, it is interesting participating in a juried show, and receiving comments from a judge (like how dog hair distracts from the quilt).  I invite you to come see!

In September, I entered my most recent quilt, “Rainbow River”, in the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fair Quilt Show. It was the first judged quilt show I had entered. I was looking forward to getting critiques back from the judge on each of my quilts. The result? Best of Show in Handquilting! (though the judge did not appreciate the occasional dog hair, she said it detracted from the quality).
