Lecture and Trunk Shows:
Lecture by Lisa Alley from NC: “Seeing what the Judge Sees”
Have you ever walked through a judged quilt show and wondered why one quilt won a ribbon and another one didn't? Sometimes, from a viewer's standpoint, the decisions are obvious and sometimes, they make noe sense at all. During this program, I walk you through what happens on the judging floor for a quilt show and what the judge looks for in a prize winning quilt. I critique my own work while you watch and hopefully, by the end of the program, help guild members feel more comfortable and encouraged to enter their quilts in your quilt show.
