My Project Quilting Shoofly Critique


P4170016I have made an executive decision to not be included in this weeks’ challenge voting and award winning.  Partly because I am giving out the awards and also I don’t want anyone to think that I am receiving biased votes since I’m managing this ‘Project’.  As stated before, I have absolutely no knowledge of the challenge any earlier than the rest of you and I started this entire thing to help inspire me to ‘think outside the square’ – so to speak.  I would love to hear other’s feedback about whether or not I should be included – I promise I won’t hold anything against you!


In the meantime I wanted to share with you the critique I received from the judges this week on my challenge.  I emailed or convo’d each competitor with their number score and critiques as well – just an added bonus of ‘Project QUILTING.’P4170014

JUDGE 1 - Diane Lapacek: Making your own stripe is amazing.  Wish it showed up better here.  Glad you pieced the branch fabric for the centers and I think you got lucky that the center one didn’t want to work, so that you ended up with the border effect.

P4170019   Judge 2 – Rose Mary Huber Pauls:  Beautiful combo of fabrics.  It’s easy to see different block combos in this quilt.  A great recovery from running short of fabric and adding another for the center blocks.

I know I really enjoy getting feedback about my creations and I hope the other contenders did as well.

I will be posting the winners of the public vote, judged vote and random generator for the comments first thing in the morning tomorrow (as long as I remember too that is).  I will be leaving first thing in the morning for the Spring Fling Craftacular.  I thought I would be leaving apple trees for my husband and in-laws to plant but *luckily* we managed to get all 90 of them planted this afternoon.  I’m sure they’ll find something else to do tomorrow while I’m at the High Noon Saloon.
