Festival Fallout ...

So the other of my quilts in the show were ...


There's an Echo in my Cherry!
 
and ...
 
Carolina Christmas ...
 
but not only that there were a couple more there working hard on the stand ...
 
recently finished, just in time ...
 
and for an example of what can be done

 
So today yesterday (amended because blogger is taking forever and some to load my pictures) I drove to Birmingham and collected my quilts, and with them came those dreaded Judges comments ... hmm, seems that on the whole my quilts were good, and in some cases excellent, but in others, well lets just say, the judge completely missed the point! 

Still I know have a pile of tissue paper, bubble wrap and brown wrapping paper to fold, sort and organise ... not rest for the wicked!

and I just happen to be on leave now til the return to school for the Diva ... so it's time to knuckle down and play catch up!

first up ... Bee Blocks for Katy ...
 

then I have this pile to turn into another round for the Ab Fab Free Bees and get is sent to Lynz sharpish before the wee beasties arrive! 

think of an image of fabric and you'd be close!
 
and then there's this that needs to be turned into a birthday present before the weekend ...
 
imagine a picture, because I've now lost the will to live!
 
and of course there is still this on the frame ...

but I do have a plan ... I was doodling first thing yesterday morning! before I tackled the Pea Room BOM for last night's meeting!
 
but, this task continues ...

in earnest!

and of course, there is the small matter of the Brit Quilt Swap 3 mini to make!
 

So I'll be back soon with something else to show you when I stop for air, food and water, and maybe with a little luck I'll find that mojo fast!

(and if Blogger ever lets me upload any pictures!)

Your quilts are wonderful and the judges can go spin if they thought anything othewise. Just saying!

I also love your quilts and anyone who dares to disagree will get a boff on the nose! Good luck with all your projects, the search for your mojo and Blogger!

Sometimes blogger is a right bugger, innit? I love all your quilts but my fave (apart from your amazing union jack/hills/RAF one from the last post - those horrid judges weren't disparaging about it, were they?) is the Echo star one. I LOVE that pattern but that fabric range and the blue setting really pops it!

Have a nice bit of time off, get cracking! *snaps whip* Happy sewing! *g*

Well I see that 'normal service' has been resumed. Lots of deadlines and things to do! I love your quilts, especially your 'What Britain means to me' quilt. Di x

Just goes to show that judges are not always right! I love the Carolina Christmas quilt: is it your own design?

Leanne said...

Remember the comment that said your quilt was excellent and forget the rest, we all know that your quilts are the best. It is the judging thing that puts people off from entering, I expect that they think they are being helpful.

So, err, not much on then ;o) I think there will always be judges that miss the point of some things, we all love them!

Cindy said...

You are amazing. Simply amazing.

Sarah said...

Jeez, I didnt realise that the Judges left comments....dont think much of that!! Still wishing I could come and fold for you.... lol
