Sunday at the Fair…..

In this area there are several fairs and they are all wonderful but the fair is the Fryeburg Fair held in Fryeburg, Maine just on the NH border. The fair has been held for more than 150 years. We go each year to look at the animals, the quilts and crafts and to eat the fair food which is forbidden except at the fair! There are more than 4000 animals and exhibits this year will focus on energy and alternative power.

A couple years ago I entered some quilts and got two ribbons – 4th place but still I was pleased. The quilt I did above did not win a ribbon but was used as a backdrop for the flower arrangements.

These pictures are last year’s just to give you a hint about what is to come…….Fair mosaic

So stay tuned……

If that quilt did not win, I'd can't imagine what did win--it's gorgeous. I love fair food..corndogs, funnel cakes, caramel apples,...see why I don't go?

Carol, I wish that all of your blog followers could see some of you later quilts especially your one block wonder and all the other quilts with Kaffe materials. Dean and I have really enjoyed your blog as we feel we can keep up with you during the time you are away from your home in Florida. See you soon!
