After our bittersweet goodbye to Rose Mary Huber Pauls last week, I put out a SOS call for new judge volunteers. Pam Geisel, aka For Quilts Sake stepped up immediately. Once I read her credentials and discussed things with Diane I knew she would be a perfect fit!
Here’s a little about her and her quilting experience:
I grew up in a suburb of southwestern Ohio where there was a corn fields across the street. My husband and I currently live in a small, artsy town in southwestern Ohio with a different corn field at the end of our street. I make and sell quilts and quilt-related art on-line and at art shows and festivals. I also co-ordinate an arts and (fine) craft show as a fund-raiser for the local nature preserve.
I made my first quilt 10 years ago. I didn't know how to sew but I love fabric and quilts so I took a class and learned how to piece and quilt by hand. I enjoyed the results but thought the process of hand piecing and quilting took too long, so I taught myself how to use a sewing machine. It wasn't long before I was making my own designs and I just can't stop making more quilts. I think I have enough ideas to last 10 years or more and they still keep coming.
There's so much that I love about quilting: the warmth and tactile nature of the fabrics, the way certain colors (and tones) react when next to a different color, and how secondary patterns are created (specifically in more traditional designs).
My professional background is in graphic design, so I am able to take the principles that I'd learned and apply them to designing a quilt: color theory, balance, composition and more. I also taught graphic design for 10 years and along with teaching the basics of design, I also had to grade and critique my students work: ranking them by assigning letter grades, providing positive feedback and offering constructive criticism.

Thanks again to Pam for volunteering to help out with the judging for the challenges this season.
As I stated in the title Pam is just ONE of our new judges – yup, we’ll have THREE permanent judges and then I will be supplementing with guest judges when I find people. I think the more opinions the better and it really helps give everyone participating some valuable feedback with a variety of tastes and opinions.
I’ll be announcing the third judge later this week and this weeks Guest Judge soon!
