Off To The Fair!

Today I took three of my quilts and entered them in the Great Frederick County Fair to be judged and scrutinized! This is my first time entering my quilts in any sort of contest.

These are the quilts and their categories:

Cosmos Starburst -- Long Arm Quilted by Another

Citrus Simply Woven -- Made by Group

Prospect Park Triangles -- Made by Machine Quilting

I was able to enter up to three different quilts among the 25 quilt categories (yes, 25!) so I decided to just go for it and enter some of my most recent finishes. Park Ranger Husband thought that I should definitely enter his Civil War quilt, but I told him that I couldn't because it hadn't been finished in the last year. He was quite disappointed.

The judging takes place next Friday but is closed, so I am not quite sure how/when I will find out the results! Next Saturday the buildings with the quilts will be open to the public, so you bet your life that I am going to be there with bells on when they open!

Three quilts entered at the Frederick County Fair!!

Since the fee for entering items includes a week long pass to the fair, I might be tempted to go every day and get fair food. This is a terrible idea since the following week is my sister's wedding and there will be zero time to alter my bridesmaid dress if I gain five pounds from eating funnel cakes every day for a week.

Happy Saturday!


  1. I recently had a red velvet funnel cake with cream cheese frosting at our county fair. I'm pretty sure I gained five pounds just from looking at it, but it was SOOOO good. :) Good luck! I'm eager to see how your quilts fare.

  2. They look wonderful! Good Luck!!!, but I know you won't need it.

  3. I'll bet you win ribbons! Usually you get the judges' comments when you pick up your quilts. Good luck! XO

  4. Hahah, I think 5 pounds is worth the funnel cake... ;) Best of luck!

  5. best of luck with your lovely quilts, not heard of funnel cake but I am sure it is delicious
