The fair has ended. All my entries have been collected. Some are hanging up again (at home where they belong) and some are waiting to be gifted. A pillow will be returned to my daughter....a dress to my granddaughter and the tshirt quilt will finally go home with my grandson. Now is the time to start planning and working towards next years fair. This year was a touch chaotic...hopefully the next year leaves me with ample opportunities to finish different projects and have them ready for the 2018 Fall Fair season.

Time will tell. I'm studying the catalogue to see where I can add things.

Blue is my favourite colour. The big quilts that took firsts were not the ones I expected.

@LadyDuck there are a lot of people who really like that one. It's a printed panel that I just quilted on the lines. Easy as pie.

It's really easy once you get the hang of it @Morleyhunt

@rebelann and to think I was always just a little intimidated by the whole thing. That's at least two new things I've learned in the last few days.

You are incredible. Have you ever made a giant blanket using this technique?

@Morleyhunt Cool, yes, I call that size 'giant'. Wow, you can make a lot of money for that sort of thing.

@YrNemo if I can find someone wanting to pay for one. Most people think I should make them for free...donate the material as well.

Congratulations! The placemats were started last winter for this year's fair are still waiting for binding (as they have been waiting since last February). A certain set of fingers didn't want to tackle hand-stitching the binding on 4 placemats. One would have been doable, four was just too much.

I love the idea of the shirt quilt. Thought of taking many of the dresses and shirts that Little Miss has grown out of and making them into a pillow. But, the clothing is still worthy of wearing and I would like them to go to someone in need.

The t-shirt quilt was something I was a little worried about....but I was really happy with the result. When I showed my grandson a month ago...he loved it....but allowed me to enter it into the fair...it won a 2nd place ribbon...pictures will follow in the next few days.

I adore your quilts, I actually found my hoop today, I should quilt the tops I sewed by hand. They are just simple squares.

Years (like at least 20) ago my girlfriend inherited two unfinished hand sewn quilt tops. They were basic nine patch made of some of the ugliest fabric I had ever seen. She asked me if I could quilt them. I searched out some sashing fabric and some vintage looking backing fabric and quilted them. I never found them to be beautiful quilts....but I didn't find them ugly either. Some of the simplest quilts can be the most beautiful. If you do finish your quilt tops...be sure to share a photo.
