The County Fair!

The County Fair!

This year, I decided to enter a few of my recent quilts in the county fair!  I've never entered anything competitive like this but I knew having a quilt hanging in the show would at least give me the push to go and see all the other beautiful quilts that had been entered.


The quilt category is broken down into sizes of quilt and then by technique.  I entered my Candy Hex Quilt in the lap quilt, pieced and quilted by the entrant category and my Swoon Quilt in the bed size, pieced and quilted by the entrant categories.  I was shocked when I went and found my quilts hanging with ribbons on them!

My Candy Hex Quilt won first place! and My Swoon Quilt won third!

I couldn't be happier with the result as there are some amazingly talented quilters in my area!  

I don't know if big time show quilting will ever be in my future--I think I'm more of a snuggly family quilt kind of quilter but this was such a fun experience and I know I'll be back to the fair next year.
