Guest Judges

The guest judges for this week are Benita from Victoriana Quilt Designs and Teri from TerifiCreations Blog. They’ll both have 100 bonus points to award to their favourite quilt(s). I asked them both what they’re working on, and Teri asks that you visit her blog to read about her trip the AQS Lancaster show last weekend. Here’s what Benita told me…

Benita – Victoriana Quilt Designs

I was happy to be invited to be a guest judge for this week of Baby Quilts – Those are some of my favourite kind of quilts to design, and I even have another two in the planning stages.


I’m currently having fun shopping my stash for the 2013 Block of the Month. I’ve just posted about this background I’ve finished using my green tone-on-tone fabrics…and I’ll be adding roses next month. Here’s how to make your own.

I’m also working on a series of nostalgic quilts, including a set of quilts ‘At the Hop’. This is the first …At the Hop – Then


I look forward to being inspired by your Baby Quilts!

    I submitted a baby quilt that I am almost finished with and one of the cutest ones I have made to date. I look forward to seeing all of the submissions for all the cute babies out there that will be blessed with a hand made baby quilt.
