Other quilts at the fair.







Yes, there were other quilts at the fair - and oh such lovely ones. It is, of course, always my favorite display at the fair - and I have to walk through at least three or four times. This year I didn't take as many photos, just strolled through and enjoyed the quilts. I did take photos of quilts that I thought certain friends would like.

This was my favorite - I think it should have gotten the Judge's Award and Best of Show - it really was gorgeous. Each duck was different and I love the way the ducks swim along the border - I really admire a quilt with great borders that a lot of thought went into!!!

This one is for Pam - I like the way it makes your eyes move - and maybe even spin a bit. . . and is very very purple!!!

Here you go, Crispy - this one's for you. It reminds me of your work and designs . . .

And this one is for me - all done in 30s fabrics. Aren't those little houses in the border just the cutest thing - again, a well thought out border.

The squares are about an inch and oh so many YoYos. . .

It was a great day at the fair. Such talented quilters.

Thank you for the pictures. I didn't have time to visit the quilt barn. I like the ducks and the yo yo quilt. And the house border is very cute. You picked some good ones.

Jo, you are absolutely right. I love the purple quilt! But I also love Crispy's quilt, and your quilt as well. I am so happy Don won a first place ribbon on his display. And you won even more ribbons! Congratulations to you and Don! Isn't it fun entering things in the county fair?

I am always impressed by the level of quilting diplayed at Lynden's Fair! I have seen a pattern for that yoyo quilt before. I too am attracted to it and have been tempted! I am not so sure about those small blocks though. That is a lot of piecing!
