This county fair is just like a real old-time country county fair, with Ferris wheel and cotton candy, pig races and 4-H, judging of chickens, pies, orchids, jams, roses, bonsai, theme-related school projects, dressage, bee-keeping, sheep, and all manner of other things. The painting, photography and sculpture is always top notch, but of all the categories I think I enjoy the quilts and needlework the best.
When we first walked into the needlework section of the
exhibit hall, I was struck by this splendid baby block quilt.
I love the colors in this Tibetan Buddhist eternal knot.
This green geometric quilt took a blue ribbon.
I wish it didn't have that apron obscuring the center.
This magical Cretan labyrinth quilt reminds me of my friend Vibra.
