So, I was browsing along Facebook one day and I saw a post from my local county fair about bringing in cakes, pies, cookies and all the fun stuff that gets judged at the fair. I have been meaning to enter my things in the county fair for ages – it’s a big deal in my family. But that post on Facebook? Was for that day. Like, I had to get my stuff to the fairgrounds in the next few hours!
It was kind of crazy, and I took the quilt right off our bed without even washing it, but, I got it done, and came home with two red ribbons (2nd place). Not bad for my first fair outing!
The blue quilt in the top right corner is mine, made for my husband last year for our 2nd wedding anniversary, and the bottom row, right under the cathedral windows is mine. It has one of the Heather Ross Lightening Bugs fabrics (VW camper vans) fussy cut and is improvisationaly pieced. Here is an awesome photo of it (except it’s called “Improv Camping Collaboration” not Improve), from it’s appearance in Quilter’s World in June. I wrote about the Modern Quilting Bee – this quilt was a result of my month in the Fussy Cut Bee on flickr.
