bees a buzzin

Wow, yesterday was a busy day...busy as a bee. My quilting bee met here. What fun. There were six of us. What fun to see what everyone else is doing...I had my camera out, ready to go but we were having such fun that I forgot to take pictures!!

So instead, I'm posting pictures of the quilts I entered in the quilt show. I didn't win any ribbons but I was really pleased with the judge's comments. Very complimentary and the comments for improvement were helpful....little things I didn't think of. So many people have told me that it is a good thing to have your quilts judged. I believe them now. I was much more critical of my own work than the judge!

There is a great give away at PUMPKIN PATCH PRIMITIVE QUILT SHOPPE. But don't go there just for the giveaway. It is a great site that I'm sure you'll love!

I'm lucky enough to have seen these two quilts in person and they are both WONDERFUL. The larger one is all hand-quilted!!!

I'm always trying to get my friends to enter their projects in the Fair, but they fear criticism. How else do we learn? I always appreciate the comments of the judges. But like you say, we are our own worst critics.

I feel like I am reading about myself! I was in education and always wanted to do something artsy but never had the time. I am now a doting Nana of two grandsons. I keep them every day so I don't have as much time to quilt as I would like but I always have a good time. Your quilts are beautiful.

Yes, we are our own worst critic...The quilts are beautiful!
It was decided that judges don't comment on quilts here anymore..But i think it's good to have it pointed out to you where you could improve on a quilt..
