I was excited to be once again asked to judge the quilts at the Georgia National Fair. This was my second year of judging and I loved every minute of it!!
When we arrived, we were greeted with 3 stacks of quilts….or as I called it, “stacks of fun”…..
The quilts had been organized the night before and the tables were ready for us to start….
As usual, there were amazing quilts and it was fun to judge the technical aspects of the quilts, while at the same time, finding ways to encourage the makers!
I loved seeing the Juvenile quilts, especially the one that was hand quilted. I hope that he/she keeps up the good work!!
There were a few things that stood out to me…..
I love the quilting on this one….
….and these diamonds caught my attention…..
And of course, this bargello using gradation fabrics garnered my interest…..
After two full days of judging, we all got together to pick the Awards of Excellence…..
…and it was so fun to see the ribbons on the quilts…..
We did a final photo of the judges….
Since we were flanking the “Best of Show” quilt, I had to do some cropping to get the photo!!!
Finally, I traveled with my friend Deb and we enjoyed 4 hours in the car, talking about our creative endeavors……does it get any better than that??
I can’t wait until next year!!!
