    You might want to put in a cotton candy, cow, pig, horse, hot dog, tickets, tents, etc. Just google these as patterns and see what pops up. I'll just bet you'll have lots to choose from. Many also look for a coloring book. They usually have great pictures that transfer to patterns easily.

    Perhaps a window pane featuring events at the fair. Like canning, livestock, farm machinery, rides. etc. Keep us posted on our progress:)

    Do you have an embroidery machine? There is a collection of county fair designs by Amazing Designs that I used to make a quilt. I embroidered designs on blocks then alternated them with a calico print.

    Are you looking for pieced blocks with names of fair related items or Appliqued blocks?

    Just to let you all know, I have been quilting only for a year, I have never taken a class. If I see it, I can do it, usually I self teach my self. To be a quilter has been like a dream come true, To me, is like peace. I dont know if you all have the same feeling, and is a joy to see the project complete. In ref to the project, I dont know very much what is available if applique or blocks, I think I will do both, if the resources are limited. so any help or guidance to where to find the information it will be greatly appreciated. thanks a million for answering my request,
