  2. I also find this to be one of my favorite categories (based on what I have seen online). It feels like most of the quilts were quilted purposefully, and the quilting really enhances the design of the quilt. In some of the other categories, I sometimes felt the quilting was more an afterthought than an integral part of the quilt.
