I have been sitting here reading the judges comments and it is funny how three people have differing opinions about a quilt.
I guess even if their is a formula it's never going to come out the same.
So this is how it goes for the group quilt.

So the only thing they all agreed about was that edge treatment and hangs well and their was no appliqué on it.
Three judges and three differing opinions. I'm baffled but hey I often am. What does one person see that another doesn't?
You deserve some photos after this little post.
What a beautiful winning miniature.
This one actually won best in show too.
