Where do you come from? - The Winners are....

First of all, we want to congratulate all the quilters who participated in our "Where do you come from? project once again for the wonderful variety of creative ideas and excellent "translation" into elaborate textile patchwork block patterns, crafted with lots of passion and attention to detail.

For us you are all winners!
 

But we could also win an international quilt jury for our project. The jurors from UK and Germany evaluated all participating blocks and their background stories according to the following criteria:

  • Workmanship: Use of materials, accuracy of sewing/appliqué, difficulty of pattern
  • Design: Visual impact, emotional response, originality, design, composition, colour
  • Story: Emotional response, originality, relevance to theme

After consolidating all score sheets, we are very happy to announce three winners. We have one winning block and two second places:
