I give everything I make away ... well I did keep the two I put in one was a king size I made on a bet that I could make a quilt top in a day and the other is one I made for the back seat of hubbys truck to carry the papillions around on lol ..... have a good night CQRobin
    OH BOY! If they're anything like me when I entered my first fair and won a blue ribbon, they will be hooked for life! I can remember how excited I was! Heck excited doesn't even describe that feeling! I only put two little quilts in this years fair and haven't been there yet to see how they did. I think we're going tonight. My first DQ swap last Sept and I entered it into the fair and won a 2nd place ribbon on that! Needless to say that got me hooked on this thing we call Doll Quilt Swapping! lol
    Oh yeah, my avitar picture is my first fair winning entry.

    I love fair time in the country ... my heart swells for the 2 first place quilts by a girl who had never sewen a thing till she started with us a year ago ... I just keep telling her what momma told me " can't never could do anything" and "if at first you don't succeed try try again" ..... and it works .... now my girls are gaining the self confidance to do bigger and better thing .... my daughter in law got a 1st and a 3rd place .... and my gf got a 1st place and a second place ... and Krystyna where would you post the pics? I want to take pics with my girls with their quilts ... I'm a happy camper today ......

    Way to go QCRobin & friends. So nice to see those you care for succeed!

    Krystyna - I would think a meander would be best on a reversible quilt.

    I am finished piecing this September Wonder - inspired by some quilts I saw on this board, I might add. Since this is my first time to join in this swap, I wonder if you guys plan it so that the quilts are passing in the mail, or if you just send them when you feel like it? I just PMd my partner, but forgot to ask her that detail. Maybe she'll have an opinion. Oh well, I'm having fun and can't wait to see some of our minis posted on the thread. Tootleloo!
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Joy, there is a deadline to mail, page 1 of this thread states the rules. Most everyone mails after they're finished tho.

    I think most send whenever they are finished, but it could also depend on the two who are swapping, if they have some preference. Can't wait to see what you made, it's fun to see everyone's ideas!!

    Yes, there is a deadline as posted!

    Great job CQR. I love it when the young and newbie quilters win. It makes them feel so good that they did wonderful work. You must have some great teachers of quilting in your group. Ahh, to see our fellow quilters grow.

    Hey mscupid804, I search for County fair in Newport News VA and found this link http://www.newportagriculturalfair.com/ WOW! Y'all have a really great fair! Lots of excitement with many different old fashion events like draft horse pulling, horse shows! Love it! Click on the link and then click program at the top part of the page. That will take you to a list of everything at the fair the just happened in August. Page 28 shows and the "sewing and fancy stitching" catagories. You can look thru all the classes anc decide what you might want to entry in next year. Normally it doesn't cost anything to entry. Go for it! It is FUN! I want to come visit y'all fair next year, looks like so much fun! good luck!

    Krazy, this fair is NOT in Newport News....it's in Newport, VA which is entirely different from where I live. I live in a fairly big city, not the country, and these things wouldn't be in the city. Nice try tho!

    The Wheatland County Fair is not a big one, but the Spokane County fair is. I am looking forward to seeing how well I did on Sunday. I prepaid for tickets and saved enough money that I could get into one of the side shows as well. Will be a good time. If I can, will post as I walk thru.

    I was able to take a few minutes inbetween finishing up a DQ and canning to find a fall UFO that I have and got it all laid out, now just to size up the block panel pictures and sew it up so I can put in line to be quilted. I hope to get the top done tonight so when I finish the one on the longarm tomorrow (hope and pray) I can do this one real quick and get in mail next week so I feel good about meeting a deadline. Oh how that bothers me when it gets down to the wire.

    I've made good progress on my little fall DQ for my partner. It's very pretty, and has some applique. Can't wait to see the quilts start getting posted.

    we have a small fair Teresa but its the boost in confidance that it gives my girls
    that counts .... and the small county fair still has the canned goods and the 4H
    clubs and cows and pigs and rabbits and the everyone has a good time ..... we love it
    next weekend we go to a small town quilt show ... there won't be more than 50 quilts there
    and we will drive 90 miles to go ... but my girls will learn there .... and get ideas .... now
    some fairs are big and have lots of stuff ..... the Oklahoma State fair has hundreds of
    quilts and my girls can send their blue ribbon quilts there .... its just fun .... wish you were
    here and you could come with us ......

    Hey I want some of those gluten free brownies, I have Celiacs so they are perfect.

    I got your quilt finished and will mail it off on Monday.

    I can't even get too mad at him he is making brownies and the smell is so wonderful! He is making gluten free brownies, yum... I am going to work on his projects now! Mending! UGH, but I have to do what I have to do ... Love those brownies~ and of course it is a rainy drizzly kind of day here, perfect for baking!

    happy sewing

    Love the sunflower fabric! Looks like fall to me-yippee, I love fall! And it is so bright and cheery. I am ready to quilt mine and I think it will glow in the dark from the border print I used. Enjoying all the quilts.

    Wanda, next time hubby makes some I will send some your way. I suffer from migraines and my Dr likes to experiment on me, the latest is going gluten free. Very very hard to do! But the migraines are still with me. I have gotten down to eating nothing but veggies and Chicken and fish, it didn't help... Pretty soon I might be on a food substitute! I think the best help for me really is exercise, so I run, and drink lots of water and quilt, that helps me the most! I call it my comfort therapy! I think the worse part is my inability to sleep long periods of time, I can usually get 3 good hours of sleep then, wide awake!

    I think "DR Jekyll's next test is in a sleep chamber! I am staying hopeful they find something out!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!
