Fair Winners!

I went to the Fair last night and was able to photograph all (I hope) of the quilt entries from our prolific group!  We had a good showing, ladies!  And there is nothing less than a blue ribbon among us!

So, to start, Connie took Grand Champion with her
"Affairs of the Heart" which I understand is now headed to Puyallup! 
So very exciting!  Congratulations, Connie!!

And one of her Jo's Little Women Club took a blue ribbon, as well.

Barb got a Best of Class and Champion
for her beaded lady.  WooHoo!
Congratulations, Barb!

And a Best of Class for her Piece and Plenty Quilt.
I love this one!
Way to go, Barb!!

Barb and Susy entered blocks in the challenge
which will be made into the raffle quilt for next  year. 
Aren't they just the cutest??

* * * * * * * * * * *
Susy got a Best of Class for her Butterfly Quilt.
Such a sweet one.  Congratulations, Susy!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
Maggie got blue ribbons for both of her entries, 
though I took the picture from the wrong side
of her game quilt.  Congratulations Maggie!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
Though Dorothy Weckman is not part of our group,
since she was one of our featured quilters at our
most recent quilt show, I though I'd include hers, as well.
She got the People's Choice Award on one of the days.
Congratulations, Dorothy!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
Sharon Hatch had four entries.  All got blue ribbons,
and the first one has a purple ribbon, but I didn't note 
which one it is.  I'll find out and correct this entry.
Congratulations, Sharon!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
Diana got blue ribbons on both of her entries,
the one she made for her husband, and the wedding ring.
Congratulations, Diana!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
Beckie's took a blue ribbon and the People's Choice award,
AND, though I took this picture before the third ribbon was awarded,
she also received the award for the most votes during
the week for People's Choice!!  Isn't that fantastic?!
Congratulations, Beckie!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
And finally, both Barb and Susy have blocks in this year's
Raffle Quilt, shown here behind Maggie, Jen and Dale.
I think Maggie is up for some sort of award for selling 
the most raffle tickets.  She sang to potential purchasers,
and many of them stopped and obliged!
The proceeds from the Raffle Quilts go to
purchase prizes for the winners of each class.

Well done, ladies!!  I love the community aspect of the Fair.
Thank you all for entering and contributing!

Happy Quilting!!
