Spring Top Wrap-up: JUDGES and behind the scenes…

I thought you might like to have a better introduction to all of our beautiful Spring Top Sewalong judges!


Week 1: Adrianna of Crafterhours (whose Skirt Week competition is just starting up again this month), Astrid of Connecting the Dots, and Deborah of Whipstitch


Week 2: Anna of Noodlehead, Shannon of luvinthemommyhood, and Kelli of True Bias


Week 3: Jamie Christina of Jamie Christina Patterns, Dana of MADE, and Lindsay of Lindsay, etc


Week 4: Meg of Fashioned by Meg, Edith of Edeenut Creates, Florence of Flossie Teacakes, and Jenny of Wan Life to Live

A big THANK YOU to these ladies for their careful selection and scoring of our finalists; their scores determined our Judge’s Choice Award winners!

I’m not sure how many people were aware of this, but behind the scenes was a team of VERY PATIENT women (my moderators) watching over all the top entries, double-checking the spreadsheet, and helping me to make sure they all fit the requirements and format I needed to be able to post them on the blog. Those moderators were: Nathalie, Shannon, Crystal, Max, Kristin, Sabra, and Amber, my wonderful Head Moderator who coordinated everyone’s schedules and took charge in just the perfect way. Thank you mods!

Finally, I would be remiss if I did not mention Myrnie, who has been my assistant now for the last three (!) Spring Top Sewalongs; she is the invaluable Spreadsheet Guru who handles all of the judges’ scores and spreadsheets, AND my sister Elli, who put together the “Top of the Tops” mosaics and put together more than one of those posts.

Thanks to everyone who helped out to make this Spring Top Sewalong another great success!
