12 Ribbons

I think I did pretty okay at the Lake County Fair. It was the first show I had ever done, and I’m so happy I did it! I won two best in show ribbons. One for my Machine Quilted Quilt, “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”, and another for my rug made from scraps of fabric and cording. I got a handful of other ribbons for some of my other work, including: River in Flames, and Alice in The Garden of Eden. I’m beyond words at this point. I finally got a chance to swing by there and take some photos, and it was so worth it! It really made all the hard work I put into quilting seem worth it! I know I shouldn’t need ribbons to make myself feel like I’m doing a good job, but it does make me warm and fuzzy! I had some very stiff competition; I’m already getting ready for next year. Next year my goal is 30 pieces! We’ll see! Wish me luck!

Best In Show

I can’t believe it! I won Best In Show at the Indiana Lake County Fair for my quilt “It’s Dangerous To Go Alone”. I’m not going to lie, I’m thrilled, and I worked so hard on that quilt. It came at just the right time, because I really needed it. When I submitted this quilt to a different quilt show, they wouldn’t even jury it in. I had put so much time and energy, and by this is by far my best quilt I have made thus far. I was really bummed about that for a couple of weeks, but this totally turned that around. I’m so grateful they liked my quilt. I won in a couple other categories, and I’ll find out everything when I go to the fair this weekend. I’m so happy!!!!
