For the third year in a row I’ve managed to win a Best of Show ribbon at the Oklahoma State Fair. Funny thing is, I don’t own any of the three quilts that have received that honor. This is food for thought regarding what I need to do in order to make prize winning quilts.
I am in some very good and familiar company with my purple ribbon this year.
The glass always messes with my ability to get good pictures, but here’s my quilt. In front of it is a man’s shirt made by my friend Don. He received a first place ribbon and a 2nd place Best of Show on it. He topped that with this quilt.
Now, before you get confused on how there could be that many Best of Show quilts you should know that there are 4 divisions of quilts broken down into 10-20 classes and each division gets a Best of Show.
Don has a total of 5 items in the fair. Here are the other 3.
