    Wow! I got a call last evening that the block I submitted to the Quilt Block Challenge for our upcoming County Fair (the one in my avatar) was selected as one of the top 12 to be used in next years Raffle Quilt. I'm so excited I just had to share with you all! :D

    Volunteers use the blocks to make a quilt that is raffled off next year at the fair. The proceeds from the raffle are donated to the Home Arts Dept. of the fair. They always turn out really nice.

    Congratulations, and what a terrific idea!

    County fairs don't just happen because you have a county seat ... not only do you have tax dollars going toward the event, there are a TON of volunteers who take care of displays and groundskeeping. A paid manager is a benefit that can go away at the sneeze of a politician. Tax dollars don't go far enough to keep your county fairs from functioning. All of us need to keep these things in mind, as county fairs progress through the nation! We enjoy them, are inspired by them, are encouraged by them, but we take a lot for granted regarding this yearly event.
    I am glad that your county managers/staff/volunteers have found such a unique way to support your county fair.

    CONGRATULATIONS :lol:

    QUESTION! What was the name of the challenge?
    They use the twelve that make the quilt ... what happens to the other entries?

    Doesn't it feel wonderful to one of the selected few? Puts a smile on your face for sure.
