Fair Ribbons





We had such a grand time at the fair - and we won ribbons!!!
So now I have to brag just a bit!!

It would have been just as much fun without the ribbons, just seeing our displays - but the ribbons added more fun! Come along and enjoy the fun with us.

Don entered his vintage baseball gloves and got a First Place ribbon, and a Best of Division ribbon. This is the display in his den.


My WA quilt got a red ribbon. It is a quilt made of blocks that I swapped with WA internet quilting friends. We each made a block depicting something that reminded us of WA. Talented group of ladies. This was in the More Than Three People category.

The blue and white Seaside quilt got a red ribbon in the Original Design category. . .

Santa and Woodland Friends won red in Tied Comforter Division. It is partly tied and partly hand quilted . . .

Hand quilted Yellow Sampler won first place in the Hand Quilting Division . . .

Grandmother's Flower Garden won first place in English Paper Pieced, professionally quilted - thank you Julie. This one really got the compliments on the quilting!!!!

And then it won Viewers' Choice on Saturday.

Here are all the quilts I entered . . .

And here are ll the ribbons I won - and Buddy E. is "helping".

Tomorrow I'll show you some of the other great quilts at the fair.
