I finished this quilt for Betty on Friday and it is entered in our quilt show this week! The deadline for judged quilts is today, so I hope she got the binding finished this weekend. I had sneaked her quilt on to my list and promised her I would really try to get it done in time. We just made it! She spent a lot of time doing all that embroidery and it turned out really nice.
My studio is a drop-off point for judged quilts and we have gotten a pile of them. There are more coming today. Judging starts early tomorrow morning with judge Anita Shackelford. It's really interesting to help out with the judging, I have learned so much by watching and listening to the judge. She has over 200 quilts to judge in two days - that's hard work!
We have hot weather for our show this week, it's humid and in the 90's which makes set-up more challenging. Because the big doors at Century II are open for vendors to unload there is no air conditioning for the two days of set-up. It gets pretty steamy in there! I'm fortunate to be nice and cool in the church where we hold the judging.
