    Red face Entered my first quilt into the county fair

    I entered the first quilt I ever made into the local county fair. They have a first quilt division, so I thought I should go for it. My sister, BIL and I went to look at them tonight. My quilt not only took the blue for the fist quilt division... but it also took BEST OF SHOW! I'm so excited. I just had to share.

    Your first quilt is just beautiful and what a thrill to win best of show! Wow, congratulations, I would be on the moon. I am a huge advocate of samplers being a first quilt because you learn so many techniques and it certainly looks like you mastered them all. You can now safely tackle any pattern with confidence. So how many quilts have you made since this one? I can't wait to see what else you have done.

    I've posted pictures of all my quilts that I've finished so far. Since November 2010...

    1. Sampler - King sized. SID on my 7" throat Brothers.
    2. QAYG (Picture didn't do justice to it. I was so tired of shoving quilt in sewing machine.)
    3. Baby quilt with dinosaurs.
    4. Summer in the Park lap quilt for daughter. (She was on bed rest while pregnant. Mom and baby are fine.) First quilt I quilted on quilting frame made by BIL.
    5. Bargello lap quilt for niece in Alaska.
    6. Over sized queen Summer in the park for step-daughter.
    7. Antarctic Window (attic window with penguins, where I made one mistake after another)
    8. Garden Maze wall hanging. Just about finished. Picture in a day or two.
    And I'm working on two lap quilts for our local hospice made from left overs of two summer in the park quilts.

    As you can see, I'm quite addicted.
