Check One Off

I believe I set a goal to "make a card."  It has been made, and delivered.
A second one is also finished.  It will be delivered today.
A third is waiting for the gift to attach to, to send to Seattle, when said gift is finished.
Those of you who toss scraps might make a note that keeping some can be useful.  :)

I went to the Tulare County Fair, to help quilt on our opportunity quilt.  The number of hand quilters in our guild is dwindling.
Those of us who are left, are still quilting strong.  This is our 2013 quilt, that we worked on, in this same corner of the Home Arts building, in 2012.
I made this block:
I entered three of my own quilts.  The two little ones received blue ribbons in the "Professional" class (where each quilt is judged on its own merit, rather than judged against other quilts by professionals).  The larger quilt did even better.  (This is the only point where the blue ribbon quilts by professionals are judged against each other, and one emerges as "best.")
Among the "amateurs," Best of Show, Overall, also won the Best of Show, Hand Quilting.  This lovely gem was made by my friend Judie Fleming.
Congratulations, Judie!

Congratulations to all who entered your work.  It's good to see that quilting is alive and well in Tulare County!

It was good to see all the Beautiful Quilts. And the Fair does a great job displaying them.
