WOW: What the Judges Thought

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays

Hearts Desire arrived home late yesterday afternoon. Well, the box did. I've only just found time to unpack it this morning, give HD a good shake and re-fold and take a look at what the judges thought of my quilt during assessment.

Best Feature:
"effective border frame, variety of scale in fabrics"

Areas to Improve:
" machine tension problems in quilting"

Well, I'd have to agree with that! I think it's time I had a serious re-think about my sewing machine options  as my 1950's Elna just can't keep up with my domestic quilting demands and of course, I don't have a stitch regulator.

Still, it's nice to have this quilt home, it reminds me how much I can do in a few months. Because at the moment, I have a lot of WIPs to get through and I'd really like the satisfaction of seeing them finished.


  1. I think that is a good review, certainly is beautiful.

  2. I was excited to see your quilt at Paducah. Beautiful, I gave a little cheer for you. As far as I was concerned, it was up with the best Esther. Arrived home on Sunday, had a great time over there.

  3. I thin it deserved a blue ribbon your workmanship is amazing. Nice to be recognized for sure.
