First time I entered a show in Kuwait was in the year 1999 or may be 2000. It was with my first quilt .We are having exhibition every year since then and I have not got fed up looking at them. Winning the best of show makes it special for me but there are several quilts in the show I wished I could have made them.Here are the few of my favorites.
This year two visiting judges Tracey Pereira- from England and Janine Ibbini- from Abudabi, who are specially invited to judge the show took a whole day to judge the 145 pieces of exhibit. Their decision was unanimous in most of the cases.They commented on each piece which is very valuable to all exhibitors. It is nice to have experts comments which I value a lot. What is technically correct for judges scale and what is attractive to laymen differs in some cases. It is an interesting study and amusing to hear the public comments on some quilts. But it is part of the growth process and part of the result of the environment we live in as the limited exposure to the international shows has a big part to play in common judgements and view points.
