YAMHILL COUNTY FAIR

Recently I entered 2 of my quilts in the Yamhill County Fair, which is held right here in McMinnville, Oregon. 

I was fortunate enough to win a blue ribbon and a Judge's Choice on each quilt.  I also won "Best of Show" on the Vintage Tin quilt.  

There were several categories, so each of my quilts won a blue ribbon in different categories while both of them were in the "Made by one person" category.  

Vintage Tin was in the sub-category of hand embroidered quilt.

 This is the quilt I made for my DH and I finished it early this year.




Oak Leaves and Turkey Feathers was in the sub-category of machine appliqué.

 I finished this quilt, which was designed by Jan Patek,  sometime last year.


Thanks for visiting!  It's hard to believe that my younger grandchildren start school this week.  Two are in 4th grade and my youngest is in 1st grade.  They grow so fast!  My 2nd grandchild will be a senior in college this year and his sister, my oldest grandchild, is married and will celebrate their 2nd anniversary this week.  DH and I will celebrate our 55th anniversary this week also!  Time is flying!!

Congrats, Ruth, on three well deserved special ribbons (how exciting that must have been to find them hanging on your quilts), and on your upcoming anniversary!
Sounds like a banner month for you. :)

CONGRATULATIONS! Your quilts definitely are worthy of the honors received! I'm not really surprised at all that you would have won all those ribbons. Your quilts are truly beautiful. Also congrats on your 55th wedding anniversary; that's quite an accomplishment in today's world! The age span of your grandchildren tells us too that you are getting old(er). *giggle* Go ahead and gloat over your winnings, your marriage, and your grand kids. You deserve it! ---"Love"
