    I don't think I'll ever enter a quilt show. My feelings would get hurt when they started pointing out all my mistakes. Good luck to you.

    I think it is fun to enter a show. every Quilt has something unusual about it & I very much enjoy going to the national shows.Didn't win any prizes but it was nice to share my work. often times I would pick a different quit for 1st place than the judges did. It depends to a degree on the likes & dislikes of the judges so I am not offended by the judges comments. I generally learn something from having the quilt judged

    Yes, everyone gets nervous.
    If you didn't care, you wouldn't get nervous.
    Because you care, you did a great job!
    One of the best things about entering in a quilt show is that is can be a great learning experience if you let it. Take every comment from the judges as a helpful hint, whether it is framed that way or not and you will not only have conquered your fear of entering a show, but you will have also learned a lot about your strengths and weaknesses. Good Luck! I know you'll do great!

    I've not entered a show but wish you best of luck with the process. I do hope you'll share tips about your experience.

    I've entered shows. Whether I win or not, it's nice seeing my quilt hang. The judges comment on the good stuff as well as pointing out areas where I can improve, so all in all it's a positive experience.

    I know what you mean. Tomarrow I will be turning in four quilts to my first judged quilt show. I have entered quilts previously into quilt shows that were not judged and that was fun. I've been told that it is a good learning experience to get judge's comments. We'll see. What part of Arkansas are you in. I lived in the Hope area about thirty years ago.
