Tulare County Fair

My Mom and Husband Larry and I went to the Tulare County Fair today.  We saw some beautiful Handmade Quilts, Crochet and Counted Cross Stitch.  I took some pictures to share.
This one is Barbara Sindlinger's Butterfly Quilt with Machine Applique.' It got a White Ribbon.  I think that is Third Place.
I don't know who made these cute Towels.  But they reminded me of my Childhood.  Embroidery is like coloring.

Diane Ruby made this Beauty.  I loved the yellow background.

I took a closeup of the Feathers.  She took my Feather Quilting Class at Thimble Towne.  And I think she quilted this after my class.  She did a great job.

This one was made by Adena Joseph.  And she got a Blue Ribbon.

Adena's mom Pat Gilcrest made this one.  Third Place.

Paula Lovett made this one.  First Place.
And here is mine.  It was entered in the Group Quilts.  And it got a Second Place.  This was the Material Girl's HST Challenge last year.  I loved the way it turned out.  I used my Curved Cross Hatching Rulers to mark it.

And here is another one of Barbara's Scrap Quilts.  I love the Orange and Pink.

Here is Suzie Kitsler's Best of Show in the Professional Category.  I can understand why it won!

Judie Fleming made this Beauty.  All hand Quilted.  Best of Show Overall!  Look at that cute Border.

This is the Beautiful Crocheted Bedspread.  So Beautiful!

I loved this Antique Hankie Quilt by Geri Hill.  I have some Hankies and I need to make them into something like this.

And Diane Ruby also got a Best of Show.  Following her BOS at Best of the Valley.

I don't know Donna Wilson.  But she does beautiful Counted Cross Stitch.  And she must have good eyes.  Because that is tiny stuff.
It was a really nice day.  I hope you get to go to the Fair too.
