Wish me luck

I drove 3 of my quilts over to the fairgrounds yesterday, our county fair is this weekend. Earlier on in my married life I entered a lot of things, in a lot of classes, sewing, gardening, photography, even won a ribbon for relish. I entered every year. Then I went cold and went a couple years with no real "meaty" entries, just some cuttings for the horticulture division.

So I stripped off the quilt on my bed, took the Autism quilt off Kevin's wall, and took the mariner's compass quilt off my husband's office wall and trotted them in to the entry table. I'm not sure what to expect, I hope they fare well, ribbons even, but you never know what you'll be up against. I like showing off, it's fun, even better when the ribbon is blue or purple. But, on the other hand, if everyone in my quilt guild had an entry, I'd have no hope, a lot of talent there. I'm humbled looking at some of their work!

I'll post pictures and results next week.

In the mean time, I have no exciting news about the kitchen or homwork or any other mundane aspects of my life. But there is a new episode of Top Chef on in 10 minutes.

I have one homemade quilt at the end of our bed, a few cushions and a crib quilt, all a bit tatty now as I did them a long time ago. My favourite is a Cathedral cushion cover [red and green] but that's seen better days too.
Look forward to those ribbons!

Fingers crossed for blue ribbons, Anne!

Comfort youself in the knowledge that only the truly obsessive compulsive types are great quilters.
Normal people make wonderful quilts from love...not neurosis.

Next year you should enter your curried chicken salad - but not in the quilt category.

I had fun at your last showing. Fascinating! Good for you for being bold.

Dang, woman. That's cool. Good luck to you. I hope you get really pretty blue ribbons. We should find you a spider who can weave the words "some quilt" over your entry, Not that you need the promotion but I can't think of fairs without thinking of "Charlotte's Web".
