Minnesota State Fair

1It’s Fair time in Minnesota.  Most people who post fair pictures on social media that show the many foods eaten at the fair.  Today, when I went to the fair, I actually didn’t eat anything, although the food did smell really good! But, I did spend a couple hours looking at the projects in the Creative Activities Building.  Lots of wonderful craftsmanship on display.

Here are my quilts:

“Bounce” – hung upside down, even though I had put a note on the quilt to designate the bottom of the quilt.  Placed first in the scrap quilt category.


“Window on My World” – kinda hidden in the back of the display case.  No ribbon for this quilt.
“Overlapping Triangles”  – placed third in the pieced bed quilt category.  I will post more pictures of this one once I get it back from the fair.

I took lots of pictures of other quilts as well:

Sweepstakes Winner – Zeeda Magnuson
Best Use of Color – Patricia Henseler
Best Machine Quilting – Mary Alsop
Best Hand Quilting – Laura Sahlberg
Best Child/Crib Quilt – Paige Peterson
Best Hand Applique – Judi Betz

And other crafts that caught my eye:

Dog House – Greg Aamodt – he’s actually the dad of my husband’s business partner
Milano Cathedral – Not sure who the craftsperson was, but this was awesome.

    Congrats on your 1st place. We were there today also. I was so impressed with the cathedral also. I can’t imagine how much time it took to construct it.

    Beautiful work on the quilts Pam! I think it’s comical that they hung your “Bounce” quilt upside down, even with a note. If we get back over there I’m going to take another look for your work, the detail is amazing! I’m glad you saw the dog house. I think it’s almost too nice to put a dog in it now! 😊
