I was amazed at everyone of these quilts. One of the perks of my job was that I was there alone with the quilts in the early morning and at night. For three days I wandered around taking pictures. You would have thought by the last day I could have remembered every quilt but I still saw something new each day. It may have been the colors that caught my eye on day one. Day two could have been reading every description and day three I saw some amazing quilting. I love quilts and I was inspired. So on with today's show.

Let me share with you what I learned from this judge because we can all benefit.
"Dynamic visual image.
Applique technique is well mastered.
Colors all work well together.
Binding should be consistent width around the quilt.
Pink piping enhances overall design."
Now the "bearding" is because I used white batting in a black quilt. So we will never do that again, right girls? No white batting in black quilts!
She said that the small dot I used to bind the quilt with wasn't constant all the way around. We need to be careful not to use a pattern that isn't constant. At times in my binding the dots are straight and at times they look angled. I may take that binding off but I also may keep it on as a visual reminder.
So all in all, if you ever get a change to have one of your quilts judged, do it. It's a great learning experience.
Though I do wish she had said something about my quilting, but maybe there wasn't anything good to say or there just wasn't time?
Tomorrow I'll be back with my quilt show goodies.
Take care, Brandie
