County Fair Wins

I've just come home from visiting my quilts at the county fair. I entered "Blue Scrappy Stars" in the pieced/patchwork catagory. I did not win any ribbons on that quilt :-( I guess the judges don't like scrappy quilts as much as I do!

I also entered a civil war reproduction quilt in the piecing /color catagory for which I earned an "Honorable Mention".

I entered a very large cheater quilt in the "Best Quilting on a Cheater Quilt". I won a blue ribbon for this quilt! I wasn't even going to enter this quilt. I didn't even get the binding on the quilt until the day I too them to the fair.

I also entered my quilt "Sophia" in the "Best Machine Quilting" catagory. The quilt is just a simple Take 5 pattern but I quilted it with a variety of different quilting techniques. This quilt won a blue ribbon as well as a Vendor's Choice rosette.

All in all - I'm pretty happy with my ribbons. This is the first year that I entered any of my quilts in the county fair.


  1. Congratulations. It's such a thrill to win something.

  2. WOW, I love all of your entries. I would enter again next year, as it sure can be a confidence builder.

  3. WOW - what great quilts! It's an honor to see one of my patterns win a ribbon - of course not for the design itself, but for your quilting - but I'm glad you used my Take 5 and that you won!!! Congrats!!!

  6. Congratulations Beth on all your quilts, and on the prize winners! It's a lot of fun to see what the judging remarks are on the back of your quilts when you pick them up. You sure have some pretty ones! Watch out, it can be contagious. I bet you are already planning next years entries! Wonderful!
