Our Sleep Jezebel and Warhol's Itch have both arrive back home from England and the Festival of Quilts 2015.
The following are the judge's comments. Andy and I always take judge's comments and notes in stride. It is a part of our learning experience.
|Sleep Jezebel - JSAB|
Judge - "A novel approach to patchwork with interesting results - the quilting creates a vivid secondary design, but the work would improve with a bit more quilting."
Judge - "Lots of 'jaggy' shapes here in the piecing and quilting. On one interpretation, colour choice might be described as bland. A worthy attempt."
|Warhol's Itch - JSAB|
Judge - "An interesting combination of cross stitch on bright colored backgrounds. An original idea and the pleated background fabric adds depth - however I feel the blocks are a bit lost on the light background."
Judge - "An unusual quilt and an ambitious project. It will create interest at the show."
I asked the following question on a couple of quilting forums –
“Does anyone know of any venue for display and/or competition where the quilt expectancies are not necessarily “pigeon-holed” (if that makes any sense)?”
Not sure if anyone understood my question. I could reword the question to read -
“Are there any open/free-form quilt displays and/or competitions?”
If you have any comment, thought, ideas feel free to contact us at Quilts SB.
