My quilts did OK in the show. My three bed quilts and Tet's were hung in a row, our own mini gallery. The left most two each picked up Judges Merit awards. Given the quilts that won the category, I'm thrilled with that. I lost count of how many times I said that a lot has to do with who/what beats you. If you lose bed quilt or hand quilting to Sandy Lush you really can't take it too badly. One friend I looked at the show with was very upset that a bed quilt only got third, ditto the one that came second, then she saw the winner.
Victorian Steampunk, my dress, was a but of a nightmare to deliver and display. I thnik the show did well given they needed to stop people standing on the train. Yes it would have been lovely to have it in a position where people could walk right around it, but that really wasn't possible at that venue. The dress collected third place in wearable art.
