Based on my recent critique, I am focusing on surface quilting and dynamic presentation (and not leaving the back of my quilt such a hopeless mess). The high score my squared corners received also pushed me to try binding off irregular corners just as neatly.
12" x 13" Machine-appliquéd cotton, cotton batting.
"Pocket Bunny" is based on a dream and the title says it all: there was indeed a bunny in my pocket.
Found a painting that spoke to me at a thrift store the other day. It's on canvas board and probably a study from at least 50 years ago. Only a little warped and scratched and the edges are in bad shape, but it's nothing a careful framing won't prevent from getting worse.
The best thing about having my quilt in the North Carolina show was that my work was critiqued by the judges. I wasn't surprised by anything they said, especially the categories where I scored pretty low. (I didn't know they cared about how neat the BACK of the quilt was! Lesson learned.) Seeing the other pieces in the show, I can see where the judges were coming from and now I have a good idea of where I need to improve!
Only one category on my sheet was marked with the highest possible score: my corners. What a surprising compliment! Keeping my quilts squared up and bound neatly is my least favorite thing, so it felt very good to have my hard work recognized.
