Super Zig-Zag Redeemed

My Honu quilt arrived safe and sound at home yesterday along with the judge’s comments from PIQF:

  • Lovely fabric choices and beautiful colors
  • Satin stitch well executed and enhances design
  • Asymmetric frame adds interest

The one comment that I especially like is the one about the satin stitch. You might recall my chagrin regarding a comment awhile back (see my Judge’s Comments post). The intent of this stitch, which Sonji refers to as “super zig-zag,” is not to be the smooth, closed satin stitch, but something a bit more open and organic (Joan’s word – perfect!). This time they understood my intent and I’m glad.

It's always nice when the judge "gets it"!
