Cindy Brick has been teaching, writing about and judging quilts, especially their history and cultural significance, since 1984. She has written six books, including *Hanky Panky Crazy Quilts* (13 printings), *Crazy Quilts* (considered a reference in its field) and *Quilts of the Golden West*, a pioneer quilts book. She also has written hundreds of articles on all areas of crafting, antiques, frugality and other issues, for print, as well as on her blog and as staffer for others. Her judging credits include Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, Pacific International, the Denver Quilt Festival and the International Quilt Festival (Houston).
She is an accredited personal property appraiser, from the American Quilter’s Society and the American Society of Appraisers, now working on her 21st year in the field. She appraises all sorts of items, from furniture to jewelry and textiles.
Cindy currently lives and works in Castle Rock, CO with her husband and two loopy golden labs, but will soon be moving into a 30-foot fifth wheel, and doing some traveling.

Participating members of Silver Threads Quilt Guild had the option of having their quilts judged by Cindy Brick. (If the entry number of the quilt has a “J” following the number, the entry was judged.) The award ribbons were awarded before the quilt show opened on Friday morning, and are separate from the Viewer’s Choice ribbons which will be awarded Saturday evening.
