2011 Fair Results

Warrick County Fair has been over for several weeks now. The only way I can remember how I did on my projects is to document it on the blog. I went through my ribbons from previous years and missed filling the info in on the back of them. I have really got to do better about some things!
I used two charm packs to make my throw. Not sure how I came up with the pattern. But I think it's kind of fun. Not my usual colors, but you can't go wrong with Christmas!

The lady that I have do my machine quilting always does such a nice job. I usually take my tops to her and let her have creative freedom. On this one, she used a multi-color thread on the front and on the back she used red. The design has holly leaves and berries in it.
Something else I tried on this quilt was to use up the fabric that I had. So for the back I took the red piece that I had and put in a strip of the holly fabric to make it big enough. Trying to get rid of some of my stash!

My flower arrangement in the rain boots (click HERE for photo) got a blue ribbon and a grand champion. My B-O-O letters (click HERE for photos) got a blue ribbon as well. Got lots of projects that I would like to finish up this weekend. I guess time will tell!
