    First time entered a quilt in the fair - & I got a ribbon!

    The quilt I made for my sister's anniversary, showing her & hubby praying for their 2 sons (in the top corners of the quilt) - took 3rd place in one of the Wall Hanging divisions.

    The rooster had chicken wire quilting on half, really cute. It came in 2nd place.

    The poppies had bead work, and took 1st place in this category.

    Beautiful. I think they are all blue ribbon material.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I just looked at your County Fair post. I recognized each of your three entries from photos you posted a while back. All lovely and memorable quilts. What more could you ask? Nicely done!
