Embellishments

Tonya, at Lazy Gal Quilting, was a runner at a quilt show and one quilt was fabulous, but got marked down for having fur on it. How unfair!!! I feel fur should be considered an embellishment. Embellishments: beads, sequins, lace, ribbons, fur. That is, also, Chrissy's opinion and she sticking to it!


Probably half the quilts would have had fur embellishments if the judge had looked closer. The quilter probably forgot to only quilt and cuddle with a coordinating cat, on that quilt. I guess I need to stick with the Amish quilt patterns for a while. Hmmm --- I have two Amish UFOs, I wonder where they are? They just needed quilted! Off to look, maybe I should have added dust as an embellishment; I will probably stir some up in the search.
