My Diamond Log Cabin wall hanging was in this category. I literally took my wall hanging right off the wall and took it to the show. It never dawned on me to give it a good press before I went…DUH!! It seems so very obvious now! You see, this wall hanging hangs on the wall by our front door. It moves around every time the door opens and closes. It’s also affected by changing temperatures. If it’s humid it changes, if it’s cold it changes. I’ve given up on ironing it on a regular basis…of course, a quilt show isn’t REGULAR. Sigh. It’s my own fault.
Anyway, here’s how my Judges slip read:
Best features of this quilt are:
- Complex Color Combination well handled
- Good Contrast
- Good Piecing
- Edges should be straight
