Yesterday I attended the Golden Triangle Quilt Guild Show in Beaumont, TX. (Figures 1-2).
Judges for the show were NQA certified judges Nell Smith (Texas), Cindy Erickson (Midwest) & Madeline Hawley (Georgia). They made a difficult job seem easy. I scribed for each of them as the show was setting up and admired their professionalism. I scribed in many different categories because I only had one entry while other members had multiple entries in various categories and we were all exempt from scribing in our own entered category.
Guild member, Karen Stone (shown below with my favorite of her quilts - Fig. 3) was the shows' featured quilter. Other personal favorites are shown below (Figures 4-7).
It was no surprise that Judy Beskow blew away the competition in the Small Art category with her fabulous I am a Rock Star (there is my wee entry hanging next to hers and looking rather puny - Fig. 8). So, I was very surprised indeed when I saw that Nell Smith selected Flowers for Elizabeth for her Judges Choice award (Fig. 9). Elizabeth was thrilled for her Grammy when she heard the news.
