County Fair

The Cabell County Fair has come and gone! But the Ribbons they left behind continue to brighten my day! I hope others quilters participate in their local fair! It is the best place to learn about Judges. Some are kind and very helpful. Then others are rude and downright mean. But in reality they have no control over anything just a Ribbon and sometimes cash prizes. Our fair cash prizes are $2 for first place and $1 for second. I have no plans to let a Judge decide my fate in the quilt world. I love these canvas fabrics I found in a box at a quilt shop.
