The Local Fair

I always do my best when quilting. And I rarely see a quilt again once it goes back to its owner. Who knows where it might turn up! A client recently told me that the quilt she had meticulously pieced, and I had meticulously quilted, won a blue ribbon at the local Guilford Fair! Now I know a lot of quilters who have a lot of ribbons from a lot of fairs. But the fairs around here do now allow me to enter anything because I am a professional. Not a professional piecer, just a professional quilter. Someone else can piece the quilt and I can quilt it, but I am not allowed to piece my own quilt. Makes no sense to me, but that's the way it is. So anyway, I am very pleased that the quilt won :)
