Just a quickie as I have to rush off today and won't be back for a bit, but it occurred to me, following previous postings and FB comments, that maybe painted quilts now need their own category at shows. The idea of an Art Quilt, Pictorial Quilt, etc cover the basics but don't allow for proper judging.
If there was a Painted Quilt section, then quilts that are painted, would be judged fairly and by specialists in painting perhaps. Just a thought. Comment/email/facebook/ etc if you think it's a good idea - even if you don't paint!
I'm planning on asking Twisted Thread about it, and even if it doesn't get anywhere, it would be interesting for me to hear your views. I think this would be something new and untried, certainly at foq, but it would make me happy for one!!
