    Wednesday night I took my entries into the Fair. Judging was yesterday, with the Fair opening today.

    I'm back ...... and oh my goodness, am I smiling! :lol: Some photos follow of my entries and the results.

    (as a note in Canada, 1st is a Red Ribbon, Blues are 2nd and White is 3rd. I think USA blue is 1st?)

    YES!! Miss Mazel placed 1st ... just as the original IRL Mazel did many years ago

    This quilt got tagged with the name "This Quilt Has Spirit" when I took it to the LAQ/LQS before it was quilted. It had spirit this week, placing 1st in Longarm Quilted by another, judged on the colour, design, and piecing. While the LAQ is not judged, I'm sure it helps influence the Judge's thoughts some.

    Category was "Cushion, handiwork, any medium" and mine is the printed farm panel. The back of the cushion is a railfence in coordinated fabrics, zipper closing about 6" in from the end, with the zipper covered with a barn door, of barn board type fabric. I was shocked to see another Red, as it was competing with smocked, applique, and intricate embroidered cushions.

    The mate to the above pillow was entered in "Any Quilted Item (not a quilt), farm theme" and received a matching Red Ribbon. Plus, the Judges Choice Award presented for overall quality and general appeal. I'm totally confused on that, as that was against all the quilting classes, including quilts, table runners, toppers, clothing, and more!

    Here's my 2nd place Christmas Tree ornament, though all you can see is the ribbon and the back of the ornament! It's a single square cathedral window style ornament with the outside being a red and metallic gold speckled fabric, and the inside of the window being a metallic gold, as is the back.. The first place was a handpainted slate piece. There were about 20 in the class.

    Couldn't get a picture of my entry in Table Runners, here's one from home. A 2nd place finish!

    1st "Quilt Block, Mounted" .... and many of you have made the same quilt block. Mine was the only paper pieced one in the class. I was nervous on this one, as I couldn't get all those bits and pieces of paper off. You could tell the Judge took it off it's mount and had a good look at the back.

    First of All .... Take Note, this is NOT my quilt! I thought you'd like to see The Grand Champion Quilt!!!! Not sure the pattern, but would it be Civil War? I don't think Farmers Wife. All DSM quilted, mostly stitch in the ditch, or line quilted. The colours aren't showing here too true to colour, just enough zip but still a very calming appeal to it. This one will go on and represent the Fair in a Provincial competition.

    The ribbons are well earned.

    Was this similar to a county fair? Or provincial?

    Thank you!!!!! *blush*
    Yes, this would likely be like your County Fairs. We don't have County Fairs as such ... ours is a large county and many of the townships and/or towns/villages have a Fair. This one is the closest to my home.

    If you missed her the first time, you might want to get a better look at her, and read a little more about how I did it!

    There were many many more. Some people make entries for the prize list. I just looked at the classes and said, oh what do I have that can get into the classes. There were some other classes that I was close to entering and then would get knocked out for one reason or the other. So I left them at home, rather than be disqualified.

    YOu got me there ... I was thinking first "big pocketbook" as in a lot of money to pay for them and said whaaaaaat??? Then wen, oh, I get it!

    Not to worry, this head won't get swollen and all out of line over my success. Next weekend I want to show at another Fair and might go to the bottom of the class, with the same entries and a different Judge! The Judge's Choice Award has me totally stymied though .... there were so many amazing pieces there, so I wonder just why?

    For those that looked earlier, you might have missed some of the later posted pics. I just added the Grand Champion Quilt (not mine) as I'm sure all would like to see it.
