Oh, we love the county fair!
When I saw Hunter's Design Studio's
BB-8 quilt pattern,
I knew it was a summer project for my son.
Because he gets bored and needs things to do.
He can sew straight lines.
And there's a whole lot of background.
Not too much piecing!
He's ten. He did great.
I am always totally impatient.
I need to find joy in watching people sew slowly.
I'm going to ponder about that.
(Here's last year's experience.
That fabulous blue solid is Kona Windsor.)
It turned out so good.
Ingrid of Baywater Quilts knocked it out of the park.
She designed the quilting and surprised us.
And he's so happy with it.
Yeah, we may do again.
Here it is at the fair.
He won --
Best of Division
And a blue ribbon.
We did 4-H for so many years, and
it was always such a positive experience.
So as long as we're trekking to the fair,
I'm taking one.
I cut triangles out with my Accuquilt.
and did a lot of sewing.
Hard to get a good picture,
but it's vibrant and so pretty.
And Ingrid's quilting is stunning.
Here is it's fair debut.
It got to be on a bed!
That's big stuff, people.
I got a blue ribbon
and Award of Merit. :)
I guess it was all worth it,
especially when we do well.
(okay, that made me laugh)
