We took my grandson to the fair last week to see the sights. While we were there we sampled some of the fair food and rode the tractor shuttle a few times. He also got to ride on a real pony.
I stopped off awhile to take a look at the quilts. I asked the ladies at the desk for the names of the entrants, but they no longer provide a list. So here are the quilts that I saw. Most of them are behind glass, so the photos aren't great.
In most cases, the quilts are folded so only a small portion of them is visible.
This Sunbonnet Sue was very well done.
The cathedral window quilt won second place.
The baby quilt in this case was hand embroidered.
I really like this medallion quilt.
This quilt has some of the license plates that were given out during the Row by Row Experience.
This quilt won for hand quilting. The photo does not do it justice.
This one was hand quilted as well.
Farmer's wife quilt (I think).
I believe this quilt was the only hexagon quilt.
I've noticed more and more hexagon quilts are quilted like the one below: pebbles in the center with a feather quilted around the hexagon rows followed by pebbles in the path between the hexagons. I think this would be faster than quilting each individual hexagon.
I thought it was interesting how this quilt used the quarter Dresden plates.
This was an oil painting that won a 4th place ribbon. I couldn't stop looking at it. That lion looked so realistic.
I should have taken more photos of the fair. I hadn't been there for over 10 years. There was a lot to see, and I when it was time to leave I realized my camera had been in my purse almost the entire time.
I've been working on some projects that I've committed to for a couple of functions and others that are on my list of UFOs. I'll have more to show you next time.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
I hope you are finding some time to do some stitching today.
