I promised that I would show some photos of work I completed and then revised after a critique session. Here goes the results with “Farm Home: Where My Story Began”. I would encourage emerging artists to find a critique group that can provide guidance. My experience with a small group from PAQA-South was extremely helpful and positive. The revised version won a 1st Place at the Durham-Orange Quilt Show in Durham, NC – August 2014 – in the 1-Party Wall Quilts category. After clicking the link above and enjoying all of the categories of gorgeous quilts, scroll down to 1-Party Wall Quilts to see three of my quilts: Farm Home, Fall Frenzy and Look, Ma!

I’ve never seen Fall Frenzy, that was very unique. I love the colors and the subjects. I think you captured the essence of the story very well.
WOW the critics suggestions really made a difference. Very nice. I like the other 2 as well. I love your quilting stitches and patterns. They really make everything pop. Nice work.
Yes. The critiques were more helpful than I realized until I started to make the corrections. I really liked what they suggested after I saw the results.
Didn’t think it could be improved to be more dynamic than the first version. Only thru the eyes of experts could these changes be envisioned to make a difference. Congratulations once more!!
