My Quilt Show Results - "Monthly Houses"

Hi there!

Hi There!

I've decided to share with you what I had written on my quilts and what the judges wrote. I've got a fairly tough skin and had hoped that I would receive constructive criticism.

HEY! You can only get better, right?!?!?

Anyhow, here's what I wrote:

Pattern was a free internet Block of the Month from HGTV - Home & Garden Television, called "Strolling the Block" by Jan Schmidt. Top started in (circa) 2004. As I had a non-existent fabric stash at the time, I enjoyed searching for bits and pieces of fabrics and embellishments here and there - at our local 2nd hand clothing stores, my Aunt's stash, etc. Longarm quilted by Gilbert Crevier (3A Quilting).

Here's what the judges wrote:

Design - Good
Colour - Good
General Presentation - Good

Top Assembly - Excellent
Quilting - Good
Finishing - Good (Needs Improvement: Squaring up before binding)

Would have liked to see inner border.
Would separate from piano key border.
Border ties together nicely with quilt.
Darker sashing might have set blocks off better.

Sooooooooo, I thought I'd share with you the judges comments in case you ever decide to enter any of your quilts in a quilt show, for judging. *s*

That is one beautiful quilt and the comments were not bad but I think you did an amazing job!

I saw this quilt. I didn't realise it was yours. My son liked these houses.
