Project Quilting – the Judges Winners for the Rectangle Challenge!

Alright – here’s the next set of winners for the Rectangle Challenge – the Judges Winners.

I’ll start with third place – with an average score of 8.25, MoranArtandQuilts takes home the bronze.

Here’s what the judges had to say:

Judge 1: Great job with the geometric design and quilting. It’s can be hard to pull of solid fabric and you’ve done it.

Judge 2: Very nicely done.  Perfect choice for the quilting.  Like the geometrics and the movement of color.

Judge 3: This wall hanging is very musical to me.  I love the way the geometric shapes flow in and out of each other at random.  The crisp white background makes the colors sing, and I love the different sized rectangular blocks you bordered it with.  Really fun and thoroughly modern, but with a bit of a retro feel too.

With a score of 8.33, PennyFabricArt took home second place this week:

Here’s what the judges thought:

Judge 1: Great geometric design. Love the variety in the stars and great color choices.

Judge 2: Gorgeous.  Love everything about it right down to those little blue squares along the edge.

Judge 3: Looking at this quilt, I can tell a lot of work and thought went into it.  The execution is wonderful.  I like that you challenged yourself to use all the scraps completely and that you exploded your stars outside the base.  It was interesting seeing your blocks come together in the extra pictures, and hear your description of the process.

And FIRST place with an average score of 9.17, who wins 2 yards of fabric (your choice in 1/2 yard cuts) from FabricFascination’s etsy shop AND $10 to the FatQuarterShop is… Thailand6 LoveBugStudios!

Here’s what the judges thought:

Judge 1: Wonderful use of rectangles. Love the abstract.

Judge 2: Congratulations on trying 5 new techniques/tools.  It’s what Project Quilting is all about.  A gorgeous piece of art.  Colors are wonderful.  The layered shapes add depth and the beads add texture.  The serging is an interesting finish that works well for an art quilt such as this.

Judge 3: So unique and lovely.  The colors really do say Thailand to me.  It is great that you were able to use the Thai silk taffeta along with the Kona, they look wonderful together.  Embellishment is definitely a strong suit of yours, as displayed in your entry for the apple blossom challenge as well.  I really like the asymmetrical design of your wall hanging, and that you chose a bamboo hanger.

Congratulations to ALL the winners this week – in my mind, everyone that entered is a winner.  It’ s not easy to take a challenge with very few rules/guidelines and create something AMAZING (yes, I feel that every entry was amazing) in just a WEEK!  Thanks to everyone – the participants, the sponsors, the supporters who have commented and tweeted about this ‘challenge’ that I have begun.  I am absolutely blown away by all the support I’ve had – thank you.

 

With that said, the next challenge will be posted THIS Sunday, May 23rd at NOON CDT – It’s Time to Think Outside the Square…
