Harrison County Fair-2012

Wow, we had double the open-class entries that we've had in the past. Thanks to everyone who brought their items to enter, it made for a very successful showing. Thanks goodness, the hall was air-conditioned this year or it would have been almost un-bearable. It was so hot the days of the Fair, actually hotter than a firecracker!!!..Ann's Best of Show quilt was a show stopper. It got lots and lots of comments from people, women and men alike. It is beautiful, all hand appliqued, hand quilted and paper pieced compasses. Gorgeous!!  Slide #4 has a nice story that goes with it. When the gal that brought it in to enter, she told that the little framed picture of chickens was drawn by the great-grandmother. So she (the gal) made a quilt to depict the drawn picture. She had some really funky, embellished chickens that were so cute. Now I wish I had taken some close-up pictures of the chickens and the picture.. I guess I just will live and learn..Enjoy the slide show...
