    I guess I can sell my ticket to the fair to someone else since that is what I bought my ticket for. :-) Congrats! I can't wait to see all of them in person tomorrow night at the fair. Great job!

    Congratulations. Your work is beautiful. I am new to quilting and would like to know if your oasis chain quilt is an old pattern or one your created yourself?

    I how you can take a plain quilt block, make a quilt then quilt it with fancy designs to make it pop. Thanks for sharing.

    So, where in Alabama? Is it really a National fair? I am laughing because that is so Alabama. Huntsville is my hometown and I just chuckle when I think of the Huntsville International Airport. Yeah. It was only about 12 years ago that they built covered jet ways so you didn't have to go outside to the airplane. And it is still just one terminal.

    Your quilts are beautiful, by the way! Can you show us a pic of the 1st prize winner? It should have been shown in full as a winner. Its funny that you are in AL where I was born and Charisma is in WA where I am now. Maybe I am feeling loopy. Need a nap!

    the fair is here in Montgomery...i have no idea why they call it the national fair lol...i know i was kinda sad that they had it folded..but i guess they had space constraints....here is the link to it http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-158119-1.htm

    I'm from Alabama and have never heard of the Alabama National Fair. We have/used to have a Alabama State Fair in Birmingham and it moved to Shelby County, did they change the name when they moved it? Congrats! ! !
