Champion

Fair is now over!  My son had two quilts entered in the fair - one through the 4-H and one through the Open classes... he cleaned up ;-)

So here is his open class quilt:

Its actually bigger than that - they folded it in half.
Which was quite humorous - the kids wanted to see the whole thing...
and kept pestering moms ;-)

And yes - that is a champion ribbon hanging in the corner

The quilt below is his 4H Quilt for this year.



They had it folded as well
And yes that is a champion ribbon as well
He was quite tickled!!

So we brought it home and hung it up
( and look - I switched ribbons!! I better go fix that)


It is fun to see people enter their quilts and learn about the feedback. 
He got some very helpful comments
One was about the matching of seams.
Glad they told him that - Mom doesn't know anything lol

I love his quilts. On my recent visit to Cincinnati, spent a day with my two six year old grandsons teaching them to sew bean bags. They were determined and excited to learn to sew. They love Spiderman too. Can't wait to show them this blog post.
