My County Fair entry

Our County Fair was held this last weekend and our quilt guild helped check in the Open Class quilts and other items.  I offered to help write down the judges comments as she went over each entry.  I enjoyed it so much and it was very informative.
This is the first time I've ever entered one of my quilts at the Fair so I really didn't know what to expect.
Soooo after she had judged all the machine pieced quilts she narrowed down the Blue, Red and White winners.

My CherryLime Mash won a Blue Ribbon!

My first County Fair entry and my first ribbon.
But.... that's not all!!  
I also won Best Pieced Quilt
&  Best Overall Quilt

Needles to say..... I am beyond proud.

 See the 'two' Gingher scissors?  I guess the gal in charge of providing the awards wasn't expecting one person to win both awards.  haha 
Thanks for stopping by....Linda
