The Ohio State Fair is running through the end of this week – August 9. I entered 3 quilts in the fair this year. I like entering quilt shows because it gives me a deadline to complete a quilt from beginning to end. It is also helpful to get feedback from the judge(s) on ways to improve my quilts.
I entered my Hexi, Any Direction, and Great Granny Squared quilts. Guidelines for this show state that the quilts cannot be more than 2 years old. Both the Great Granny Squared and Any Direction were made this year. The Hexi quilt was made and completed 1 year ago.
My Great Granny Squared won a Blue Ribbon in the Full Size Category!
My Hexi quilt won 2nd place the wall hanging category.
My Any Direction quilt was also part of the wall hanging category.
There were so many beautiful handmade items entered and displayed by other artists at the fair this year.
If you are close to Columbus, OH and can make it to the fair, you will be in for a visual treat – and maybe a yummy treat like funnel cake 😋.

Congratulations! It is a real kick to win a ribbon, and I think more of a joy to see one’s quilts hanging in a show.

Thank you! I enjoy seeing the quilts displayed too – and definitely a bonus to win!
