    I was so nervous about entering my work in the fair this weekend, but it turns out I had nothing to worry about :)

    I won 6 prizes out of the 7 categories I entered my work in!

    I saw some of the other pieces there when I was registering and dropping off my stuff, and it was all very nice, and when we came back several hours later the judging was finished and everything was displayed. My jaw nearly hit the floor, I couldn't believe I had won anything at all!

    The one category I didn't win was the pieced top. Mine wasn't quite finished, and there were a LOT of other ones to consider which were better than mine.

    Large machine pieced, machine quilted; 2nd place

    Congrats on placing at the fair. Nice quilts and drawing. What's the pattern called for the baby quilt? I love patterns that look like mazes. Keep up the good job.
