2015 ASQG quilt show ~ Judged quilts

Center of Amaretto Cottage by Janie and Jo

 Amaretto Cottage
I am so happy for Janie, that her quilt won a 1st place ribbon in it's category! We worked on it together for over a year. Janie asked for my help, however I learned just as much as she did thru the entire process from the first cut to the judging.  Thank you Janie!

Entering a quilt to be judged is a rewarding experience, even at guild show level. Jody Ohrt was this year's Judge. Jody has judged many competitions including Pacific International Quilt Festival. "The purpose of having a quilt judged is to provide the quilter with feedback on the strengths of the quilt in terms of the quilt's overall appearance, workmanship and design. A written evaluation is a learning experience. The judge reinforces a quilter's expertise by commenting on skills that are well accomplished. The judge also gives the quilter comments on areas that may need more practice." 

Following are four more quilts that earned ribbons

There were lots more that I didn't get pix of. The time went by so fast and there were so many things to do and see. Keeping the vendors happy kept us busy too. 
One more, this is Sally's wonderful applique quilt that won Viewer's Choice award
and you can see why (exhibit only, this quilt was not judged)

Annie's Star Quilt Guild in Chico, CA has some very talented quilters!
