Wins at the Fair

I made it to the Alaska state fair yesterday. My big entry, "Katchemak Baywatch," won second place for its division. I cannot remember the first place winner and I forgot to get a picture of it. There were lots of pretty quilts...many batiks! It looked like there was some pretty good competition in the large quilt division.

I threw in this small quilt just to see how it would do. It won first place for its division but since it was a cathedral window version...I put it in that category...I may not have had any competition. But I will take that blue ribbon. Can't win it you don't enter!

I wanted to get photos of all the gargantuan produce that is entered into the fair but that barn was closed for judging. There was a vendor selling gigantic zucchinis for $5 a piece.

Our fair grounds are full of wonderful flower beds. I really should have taken more photos of them. My friend and I both loved this red flower but have not idea what it is.

It was a fun day. I am anxious to get the comment sheets from the judges.

Congratulations on your winning entries... love that batik quilt. Those giant zucchinis are amazing... I remember when I lived in PA people would leave bags of produce on the front seat of your car if you left the doors unlocked... I got many a zucchini that way one summer... it was a long time ago...1980... a simpler time.
