    I posted this pic a few months ago. It's for my granddaughter (who will be 7) for Christmas.

    I entered it in two quilt shows, one of which was last weekend (Oct. 2 & 3) and the other is coming up this coming weekend (15th & 16th).

    This is what the judge from the first show commented. I'm okay with what she had to say, since this was my first one in a show, and my 3rd full size quilt.

    ***********

    Best Feature: Flange is an excellent design choice to extend the color into the border. Decorative applique stitch hugs the motifs and is secure. Consistent MQ stitch length noted.

    Improvements needed: Long seams should be straight. Outer borders would benefit from quilting.

    ***********

    Now, I THINK the MQ she mentioned is probably the long arm quilter - although I did the stitch in the ditch along the sashing and the borders. So maybe it's my stitch length that she was referrrng to. And Jodi, the long arm quilter, and I talked about the quilting in the borders, and she felt that it would be okay without them (3 1/2 inches wide, with cotton batting). She tried to quilt it, but had some problems due to some waviness (because of those seams mentioned above possibly????). Anyway, I may add some quilting to the borders after I get it back next week, for more reinforcement.

    I will post again next week with the results of the second show! And since I will be attending, I will have plenty of pics to show as well!!!

    If by chance you have wavy borders (yes it is actuly common for newbies) the best fix while quilting is to do piano keys or beadboard. that way when a wave is evident you just take a lil pleat and do your bead or piano to hide it.
