Ribbons at the Oregon State Fair

Wow!  With over 200 quilts and a huge amount of work by the Mid Valley Quilt Guild of Salem, the State Fair had a lovely display of quilts.  There were so many oohs and aahs as I walked the aisles of quilts.  The guild provided white glove people and lots of signs saying to keep your hands OFF the quilts.   Here are my wins!

Both of the quilts below are mine (the heart one I need to return to my daughter).

This was the quilt that three of us contributed strips of three 1.5″ squares and each of us now has a pretty big quilt.
