    Does not flow? HUH????????????????? I think your "fair" needs some new judges. If you give me the address, I have LOTS of extra reader glasses I'll be happy to donate to them.

    Please don't take their offensive message to heart. I've been quilting for years, seen tons of quilts as well, and I think this is one of the cutest quilts I've laid my old eyes on!

    Keep up the beautiful work! Tell those judges if they want "flow" to go to the river they should see plenty there!

    I think it's incredibly beautiful, they were ignorant and obviously not quilters

    All of the above!!!! Good grief! I haven't entered quilts in a fair, but I thought EVERYONE could enter...didn't know they were judged. I entered a painting once....of an ocean scene. The one that won didn't even look like an ocean!!!! (was in the ocean category). I found out later that the judges were related to the one that won....maybe the same thing happened to you OR they were just plain brain dead!!!!

    I love your quilt!
