I entered the boot quilt I made at our local county fair. If you all remember, I made it with tons of encouragement and advice from the members of this board, especially EvelynB and imaquilter. I read the premium book before going to the fairgrounds and saw that there were 27 categories under Quilting. The one category I told myself to stay away from was 'machine quilting." The committee accepting projects wasn't too organized and it took an hour in line to actually enter! I was so flustered by the time I got to the entry table. Guess which category they put me in! Yes, machine quilting. I was very surprised and excited that they awarded my quilt a first place ribbon. Then I was worried that I was the only entry!!! (I wasn't! Whew!)
Thanks for all the help!
Congratulations! Your boot quilt is adorable and I'm glad it was so well received at the show.
hey, that's GREAT! Congratulations

Way to go, girlfriend!!! Love that boot pattern.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
WTG!!! Well deserved.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
Oh how wonderful!!!!

Yea! Love the quilt, deserved the prize!

How exciting! Congratulations!!
my philosophy: there are no real mistakes in quilting, just design opportunities!!
Great job, congratulations!
Special kudos for you....it wasn't even in the category you wanted. You were really out of your comfort zone and look what you did!!!!
congratulation!!!! isn't it exciting. i got first place for my flip flop quilt at our local fair. sounds to me like footwear quilts was the thing to enter in our local fairs
Thanks for all of the compliments! TcMay - you are right that the pattern I used was the one that EvelynB shared with us. She made a great scrap boot quilt and a couple of Xmas tree skirts that were adorable. califgal - I remember that your flip-flop quilt also won first. Hats off (or is that shoes off!) to footwear quilts!!
Thanks again everyone,
Susan, You did a great job on your "Boot" quilt. They gave the Blue to the right person. Congratulations. Pat
