Fair results!


I got a blue ribbon on my color wheel quilt, and also one for my counted cross stitch picture! The only negatives that the judge saw on the quilt was that my corners weren't square enough. The judge for the CCS piece liked the CQ down the side.
My friend Lauri got a blue ribbon for her color study, and a Judges' Choice ribbon! Ours were the only two CQs in the fair, and both got blue ribbons! A pretty good showing for the CQers of the world.

Ohh Janet, how did you get the purple to photograph so well? (reads blue on my camera 90% of the time) It really shows off the shimmer on your fabrics & stitches!
BTW, I never heard of "square" edge in CQ, guess that "other" judge knows different... Congrats!

It seems to me that judges worry too much about straight seems, isn't that what embelleshment & quilting is for?
