The SM Fair 2017

Made it to the fair this weekend, enjoying the 350+ quilts and other art forms from local crafters/artisans on display. I must say, there are some talented people out there! I wish I could show some of the quilts, drawings, and paintings that we saw, but I do not have permission from the artists to post their work - need to keep all things good in blogland!

So this post will be about my quilt entries, because some of them deserve bragging rights. The first quilts we came across were Sawtooth Flowers and Double Jumble Turtles,

taking 1st and 2nd in the same pieced category. Woohoo! Totally unexpected, but hey, I'll take it!

Next to be found were the table runners, Love Abounds and Holiday Forest

again placing 1st and 2nd in the Sewing Division. Notice the big purple rosette ribbon on Love Abounds - that's a Judges Choice Award. 

Next up was Santorini, which I knew would do well, garnering a 1st place ribbon for wall quilts.

The modern quilts were on the very last row, and there hung Unlimited,

with a 3rd place ribbon, and Seed Mix,


Seed Mix Best Modern Quilt

my most favorite quilt, with a 1st place ribbon and a Best Modern Quilt rosette! I love this quilt, and so happy that the judges loved it too! That rosette also comes with a $25 gift certificate to a local quilt shop - any suggestions on what I should spend it on?

Of course, can't forget the quilts that were there to enjoy.
Breaking Up

Scrap Strata



Diamond Chevrons




Blossoms

My take on entering? One never knows what's going to strike the fancy of the judges. So take a chance and enter your quilts!

Happy Quilting!
