Quilt Show Judge Andrea Perejda, NACQJ
Andi Perejda achieved her NQA judge’s certification in 2003 and is also a
Master Quilt Judge. She served as Education Chairman on the NQA Board of Directors for four years. Andi has judged quilt competitions in a number of states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana, Texas, Nevada, Wyoming, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Michigan and California. Upon the dissolution of the NQA, Andi worked to establish the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges as a founding Board member.
Quilt creation is Andi’s passion and her works have been shown nationally and internationally over the past two decades. Her quilts range from traditional appliqué and hand quilting to art quilts. The past few years have found her working in surface design techniques. Her work has won Best of Show, First in Art Quilts, Merit Hand Quilting, Applique Master, McCall’s Hand Workmanship Award and the NQA Mary Krickbaum Award. She offers two workshops to quilters through Bluprint.com (formerly Craftsy).
