I made this post on Sunday, asking for help in deciding which quilt to enter in the local fall fair. How naive was I. The response was OVERWHELMING!
But this did not solve my problem. From the comments left on the post and those on the Google Plus post, the Scrappy Stars quilt was only ahead by a nose. I took my husband and each of my kids aside separately and asked for their opinions.... And each of them chose the Flowers in the Sun!
One comment really stuck in my mind as I considered what to do.....Sarah @ mila+cuatro said... Which one do you feel shows your talents as a quilter in their best light?
And here were the results of our little country fair....
Quilt Top Not Quilted - First
Crib Quilt Machine Quilted - First
Machine Quilted Quilt - Second
And here is the First place winner!
Believe me, this quilt was much prettier in 'real' life!
The colours were much brighter. It was quilted with a medium meander.
I really would have liked to get better pictures, but they were packing things up by the time I got there. So my daughter got this pic with her iphone and that's the best I could do!
Now I want to thank you all.
I really do appreciate all the sweet compliments, your encouragement, and your willingness to help!
It is nice to know I could count on you all when I needed it!
