One of my quilts took an honorable mention - the comments on the quilt were pretty much what I expected - they liked the design and the bindings, but thought more quilting was needed. I agree, just haven't found a matching thread color that I like with it yet.
Definitely needs more quilting. Sigh... Maybe when I get it back?
My second quilt at the fair took a second place in its category, but also won a spotlight award, which is a big fancy ribbon. I'm excited.
I hope I get to keep the ribbon! (Last time one of my quilts got a big fancy ribbon, it was nominated for best in show at the Fair. They displayed it with a big fancy 'nominated for' ribbon, which I didn't get to keep).
Anyway, I'm very happy with the results.
Tonight? I'd rather stay home and watch gymnastics at the Olympics. sigh....
