The year has started well with a week in California helping out on the Judging Floor of the Road to California Quilt Show. We have 2 days of hard work and fun in very pleasant company and the end result of seeing all the quilts hung with the prizewinners celebrated makes it all a fantastic experience. All being well I shall be back for 2015!
At the end of 2013 we heard that we have passed our Judging Course with the Quilters Guild of the British Isles, and already some of the participants are off and judging in Europe. I made some very interesting contacts and friends during the more than 2 years we worked on the course and wish all of them well. We will be catching up at the AGM in April in Portsmouth when we will be presented with our certificates. I must say I have been able to do more sewing since the studying stopped and should get even more if these heat waves ever stop!
Spent a lovely day with AQA recently sharing my Adventures of the Judging Floor. More than 80 members attended on what was another very hot day, they made it very easy for me and looked after everything I needed. Hope they enjoyed it as much as I did.
So far this year Illuminate has been accepted into Living Colour, Exuberant Feathers is a semi-finalist at Lancaster PA AQS Show, and am finishing Blueberry Pickle for the Castlemaine Applique Group Exhibition on the 15-16th March. Just need to keep at it!
