Judging quilts in one day

I remember the post by Judy where she stated that quilt judges can only judge 20 quilts in a day. I just came home from judging a pre-hung show, written comments only to the top place winners, and I judged over 400 quilts in an 11 hour timespan. Only had an hour off for lunch and another one for dinner. I was totally exhausted at the end, but I managed to do it.

    I am not the Judy who made the comment on quilt judges and their work. I'm innocent.

    Linda, did you have an "assistant" of some kind to act as secretary for the paperwork?

    You may have been misquoting me. I said that at our last show, the "professional" judge that we hired said she would only judge 50 quilts. We had to scurry to find someone for the other 25 or so that wanted to be judged.

    If somebody else said 20, then I'm off the hook!!

    It was another Judy, not Judy in Ohio. The original post was back about a month or so. There were two judges and we both judged all the quilts. Only the first place and special award winners had comments written down for them, and we had two people who were writing those down for us. If you do the calculations we had less than 2 minutes per quilt in order to get them all judged in the time allotted.

    Something like that judging endurance contest must be very painful because I'm sure you try to be conscientious about each entry but I'll bet that there might be a few that are hopelessly grim and 'what-is-this-doing-here?" bad.
