morning. After going to out to lunch with Tim we arrived back at the Fair building for the Judging. The Judge was very thorough. looked at all aspects of each quilt. I was awarded 6 blues. She then made her choice of Best of show. not mine... loll... so we went home.
but then I see my name on a sign near this plaque,, and a big Blue Silver ribbon. ooooooooNIce! And all the ladies helping at the display descended on me. A very jolly bunch.. It seems that Doris Hansen ( of the award) was a known quilter in the area and she did very Fine work. She had so much fun at the Fairs they wanted to carry that forward by starting this plaque and pretty ribbons. The family comes to the Fair each year, This is her sister, along with her daughter and they choose the quilt They like. Usually hand quilted!
......... how bout that !
