County Fair Wrap Up

I did try to take pictures of quilts at the fair so I could share some quilty eye candy but, again, as last year, the quilts were not hung. The champion hand quilted quilt was displayed and a portion of my map quilt was displayed, as was the champion afghan.

But that was it. The rest of the quilts were folded and propped up so you could see about 12 - 15 square inches.... sometimes less. And they were behind glass.
I so wanted to see everyone else's quilts, and I know I wasn't the only one to complain. We were told that they have solutions in mind for next year and they will hang the quilts. We'll see.

After I picked up my quilts I took final pictures of the Map Quilt with the corrections and cars.

Car on gravel road with "dust" . . .


On the South side of the road is our old farm.  The new owners have chickens and horses.... we just had horses.  On the North side of the road are the neighbors that God plunked us next to for our first several years in the country.  Many thanks for that - they are awesome people . . .

Town. And the strip of houses just south of town where we now live . . .

Great Quilt! I love it. Thanks for the close-ups. I agree that all the quilts should be displayed hanging, so they can be enjoyed by visitors. I hope they will correct that in the future.
