After two days of judging and 3 days of workshops.....I'm on my way home......well sort of....currently I'm holed up in an airline club, waiting for the thunderstorms to pass through Chicago!
Thought it'd be a good chance to share some of the astonishing quilts displayed at VQF. This is not a juried show.....the first 200 quilts entered are given the honor of being hung. There are no monetary awards. I was pleasantly surprised at the very high quality of work....it was an honor to judge the show.
My show booklet is in my checked baggage so I can't quote many of the specific awards these pieces received.......but they were all winners in my eye!
FEATHERS AGLOW by Judith Thompson, Wenonah, NJ
BEST OF SHOW
NENANA SPRING by Pamela Druhen, Northfield, VT
I'm not sure exactly what the name of this award was....but it was equivalent to what we think of as the Best Wall Quilt. It was created on a traditional sewing machine and was breathtaking.
This is a wonderful show to attend........well organized, great vendors, in a lovely setting.....consider adding it to your 2011 show list!
