Iredell County Fair 2010

This is the third year I have entered some of my quilts and totes into our local county fair. The first year I entered only one and WON a blue ribbon for best pieced. I was so excited, I couldn't wait for the next year.
Last year I had seven entries and received a ribbon on each piece.

 This year I entered 6 catagories and received 4 ribbons. Here are some photos on my winning entries.
The brown one with the chicken photo is Alan's Angels quilt. I entered it in "pieced".
The red t-shirt quilt I entered in "other" catagory and won a third place ribbon.

This is Lauren's quilt. I won third place in "design".
Thanks Lauren for letting me borrow your quilt this week.

This was a last minute addition for the fair.  I had seen this on someone's blog and then also saw in in Quilts and More magazine.  Tote bags made from dog and cat food bags.  It took a whole 30 minutes to make.  I received a third place ribbon.  (There was only three entries!)  I just thought this was a really neat idea!

This is my favorite piece! A batik wall hanging and it received a Blue Ribbon!  I also had a story about this piece posted on Mary Jo's Fabric shop blogspot.

This is my mini version of the Underground Railroad. It was entered in the mini catagory and I received a Blue Ribbon for this one!  I really do like this piece too!

Entering these pieces in the county fair makes me feel proud in doing my part to keep a
piece on American Traditions/History going.

Love your quilt pictures. I'm a novelist writing books about quilters, the quilt barns, and other quilt related subjects. My initial novel in the series is set in Love Valley and will release shortly before Christmas.
