    WOW! They are gorgeous! Love the first one - the applique is great! They're all really nice - also like the alphabet one.

    You mean they let you take pictures? I went to a quilt show once and when I took out my camera I thought I was going to be asked to leave.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing. It must have been difficult to judge with so many beautiful quilts.

    I love the one with the squirrels on it. It looks like they are pulling the pumpkin coach.

    thanks for posting the quilts from the show. They are all awesome. I especially like the red one and the bargello.

    Yummy, they're all gorgeous but I'm a sucker for the bargello.
    How did you put all those pictures into your post without the download windows and being limited to 3 pictures?

    Most of the shows I have gone to, you may take pics of the quilt entries...but NOT of quilts hanging in vendor booths. And at the big quilt show that was just in Long Beach, CA, some of the entry quilts also had signs saying no photos.

    Thanks for sharing these from the Fair! They're all wonderful!
    :D

    I have a webshots account and it allows you to post a direct link to the photos in your album.

    I posted mine in a separate thread. Look for the thread that says "Alaska State Fair Results".

    Gorgeous quilts, thanks for sharing your day at the Show. Canīt make up my mind, between the bear paw and the bargello.
