Judge it for yourselves, comments welcome, however be nice... it's been a long day.
Yes, my pretty block with curves came in last at the Medina County Quilt Show. This was a money prize and I was sure I was going to win after seeing that none of the competition had even attempted curves. The judges remarks state that my block has poor stitching, poor tension, poor thread color choice, poor seam allowance, poor handling of bulk, poor junctions, poor points, poor curves, poor grain and use of fabric... in addition the judge claims that my work has major errors and is distorted. When I picked up the block this afternoon I asked if the Medina County Fair used a certified quilt judge. "Of course not" said the smug lady from the Medina County Quilt Guild "that would cost too much".
