Quilt Fest Registration

On-line registration began last evening at 6:00 pm and was very easy to complete!  Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this happen!  I've added a countdown gadget to the sidebar....109 days seems like a long time to wait, doesn't it?  Not really, since time seems to fly once summer arrives.  It does give you time to make a quilt for the show!  We have plenty of space to hang lots of wonderful quilts this year, so let's make it our biggest show ever.

Too many quilters say that their quilt isn't good enough to enter into a competition or they are beginners, or they are afraid to have it judged, or......Most of us have said something similar, right?  Here's a question for you.  Do you take your quilts to guild meetings for "show & tell?  If you answered "yes", that means that you've already shown your quilts and in theory had them judged by all of your friends.  It's very scary to have real judges critique your work, especially the first time.  Most judges will give you very positive feedback as well as let you know which areas may need improvement.  Their comments are not meant as a criticism for your work, but more as a tool to help you improve your skill as a quilter.
