    There's definitely some beautiful quilts there! What I did notice, was lack of quilting on some of them. If they had put more effort into the quilting, they'd have probably ribboned. Definitely great inspiration there.

    Lovely selection of quilts. I am glad that you did not ask us for a favorite. I saw several that would fit that category. Thanks for sharing your tour of the quilts at the fair.

    These are beautiful! Thank you for sharing - my favorite would be the - oh heck - all of them. But I am partial to the rainbow horse, I remember reading this book to my son who is now 24.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    My favorite is in the second set of pictures, the picture just below the Madonna. It's a little whimsical, topsy turvey quilt with a chicken and a crooked house!

    Yes, the pink cat was mine, it hung below the praying parents quilt I made for my sister (that one won a ribbon! http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...n-t197073.html) I also had the quilt I made for my daughter & her hubby for their anniversary a couple years ago - it has pics of all 6 grandkids faces (it is the blue & brown quilt above the embroidered quilts).

    Did you mean this one? My daughter liked it too, and she doesn't really care for quilts too much.

    Looks like a fun time...thanks for sharing all your photos.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Rainbow Zebra

    The Rainbow Zebra comes in many forms: a story book in fabric blocks about accepting differences in yourself and others (great for kids); in patterns for cutting out a stuffed toy zebra; a crib-quilt panel, and as a child's growth chart. The fabrics were put out by V.I.P. fabrics several years ago, and I have not seen them in a long time. A pity - the series is just wonderful; I've made them all for grandkids, g-nephews and nieces, and gifts. Hope you can find some.

    I made the stuffed Zebra about 2 months ago. Someone donated the panel for it to my charity group . I had never seen it before but seems those that do fall in love with it. Stuffed 2 of them both bought for grandchildren.
    Becausee I had knee surgery I am not sewing and haven't been able to post pics but wanted to share anyway.
    I am so glad to see the quilt panel with it. Imagine from Nebraska to Ontario.
