Here are the judges comments:
Strong use of contrasting colors that 'sing' against each other.
Innovative use of old crochet and embroidered doilies.
Good choice of pieced fabrics in background, but perhaps the proportion of background is a bit large for the purple circles.
Pleasing quilting design.
So I have two questions: What embroidered doilies?
Large pieces? This is all about the doilies the large pieces were chosen so that the background would just be there.
