I am there for the judging and I am the one who stands with the judge to tell her which category this quilt or afghan is in. Our fair is judged on the American system, one set of ribbons unless there are 10 items in the category or more. Many years ago I was doing a LOT of quilting for others and started entering in the professional division, although I am FAR from a professional. I still enter that category as the fair board said it's hard to switch back, even though I don't quilt for pay anymore.
I did get my Canyon Dance quilt finished. Terrible photo in a hurry before the fair.
So if that wasn't enough.... there is another fair in the next county. They allow entries from the surrounding counties and I have never entered before. I have never even been to that fair! My husband wanted to go to "town" and pick up some things and I said if we went Tuesday I would enter quilts. So after work we did. I picked 5 because their categories were very limited. They judge on the Danish system, entries get a ribbon if they deserve it.
I had to go down Saturday as my car was throwing codes and needed a checkup so I went to the fair. I was shocked to see the entries behind plastic, but at the same time, it keeps dirty hands off of them! I was awarded 5 blues! I went back Sunday afternoon to pickup up my entries.
