She who dies with the most fabric wins

You've heard of that old saying. Well here's a good candidate.

We play a round of LRC (left, right, center) with 3 themed fat quarters each time my group gets together. Yours truly has yet to win.

Vermont was so fun and the quilts were outstanding. It really is a different kind of show, much more traditional than any I'd been to in awhile. Barb and I went to the judges panel to hear what they are looking for in the winners. These three things they mentioned stayed with me - uniqueness, quilting that complements the quilt, humility. Yes - humility.

Here's the overall winner - a gorgeous Baltimore with all the bells and whistles.

And this was my favorite - Honey, I'm home - so thoughtful and clever.




That bee quilt is so cool. Very nicely done. And a good yellow! yellow can be so off sometimes. But boy that got that one right!
Looks like you had a great time!

OMGosh that Baltimore is fabulous!! Did the judges explain how they determine humility? What a weird thing to say LOL.

that Baltimore is incredible, wow
the Bee quilt is very creative, not a fan of bees personally so don't think I would like that quilt hanging in my home!
yes interesting they are looking for humility? the other two I totally understand.

Love both the quilts, I can see why the Baltimore won. I think the same as the others have said, how do you define humility and how do you recognise it in a quilt.
