    What the heck does, "Does not flow," mean? It is very clever and couldn't be lovelier. It brings a smile to ones face. I am sure your friend is thrilled with it.

    It looks absolutely amazing to me! Maybe the other quilts didn't measure up.

    If they wanted "flow", go look at a river. The quilt is beautiful :lol:

    I think it flows, and is just darling. What a clever idea.

    Got a hold of the quilt police did ya. I think it is so cute & looks like a lot of work. You know how those old crows are. If it isn't traditional they reject. :evil: I need an icon with it's tongue sticking out.

    Did they judge the homemade wine just prior to your quilt? And there were a LOT of wine entries that year?

    Tyring to give them the benefit of the doubt :)

    Love the quilt and LOVE the label on the back all the way down to the stitching you used to attach it and the "ragged" edges! Did you make the label or did you get it somewhere?

    I think it flows well. Just my opinion. I think it's great.

    Your quilt is lovely! It is original, colorful and made with heart. So what if "judges" don't like it.

    My quilts do not pass muster when entered into quilting contests. So, I just don't enter them. However, they DO sell, even before they see a quilting hoop, for $300 to over a thousand dollars! That seems a lot better than a blue ribbon to me.

    Quilting is a gift to you. Time to creat something and relax. It really doesn't matter whether anyone else likes it - this is YOUR artistic endeavor. Quilt away!

    That is a piece of art! Wonderful. Don't give up being creative just because some judges said that it "didn't flow".

    From reading the comments here I think you can tell who's right and who was very, very wrong. It's a wonderful quilt, unique, colorful, happy. Maybe they only wanted "by the book" quilts. That's okay but some imagination would be an asset to the quilt entries. Their loss.

    Could be because you had your name on the quilt. Here , at the Santa Cruz County Fair , a work ( like a picture) is rejected if it has the maker's signature on it .
    This is in case one of the judges knows the creator of the work of art and favors that person .

    Whatever the reason. it is a real fun quilt!!!

    It is beautiful. Some judges have no idea what they are talking about. They are like movie critics, take it with a grain of salt, because I think it is absolutely gorgeous! :D
