Fair Love

30 Sep

 

As many of you know, I entered a couple of quilts into our local fair recently. Our fair is very large. One of the 10 largest fairs in the US actually. It is so expensive to eat or ride rides at the fair so we haven’t done that for several years. My favorite part about the fair though is looking at all of the exhibits, listening to local bands, and the animals.

We had a really great time this year. We looked at all of the agriculture exhibits (which are always amazing). The kids got to do some free activities like beading and painting. We saw a couple different bands and a magician.

We love watching the draft horses. They really are some of the most beautiful animals ever. I caught this picture on my cell phone and thought it turned out really cool (totally by accident).

There was one barn full of nothing but bunnies. We looked at every single one. This little guy stole my heart.

Of course we had to go see the quilts. There were hundreds of them hanging from the ceiling.

 

Imagine my surprise when I saw my quilt, in this sea of gorgeousness, hanging there with a little red ribbon on it.

I just got my quilts back this Tuesday, and wouldn’t you know it, the Quilting Gallery Contest this week is Flying Geese! This quilt has over 100 flying geese pieces in it, so I decided to enter. It’s not cheating to win more than one award for the same quilt, right? Heehee!

If you are so inclined, won’t you please take a peek at the quilts in the contest this week and vote for your favorite? I hope you choose mine, but there are always many beautiful quilts there so if you choose another it’s okay. I’ll only cry for a week or so 😉 Voting starts tomorrow and goes through Sunday.

Hope

14 Sep

As promised, this beautiful quilt is now finished. It is called “Hydrangeas for Hope”. Both Lizze’s mother and sister have had breast cancer, so this is a cause that touches her very deeply. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this quilt will be donated to the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk. Please take a look at this listing. It is for such a wonderful cause. The month of October is national breast cancer awareness month. This quilt would be a lovely and touching gift for any woman who has fought, or is still fighting this awful disease.

Little ribbons are quilted in the corners

backed with super soft minkee fabric

I made a treasury as well. I carefully selected items made by other etsy sellers that also help in donating to Susan G. Komen. All of these listings will donate a portion (and a few of them are donating ALL) of the proceeds of the sale. Let’s get these sold!!!
