As with all rural Ontario Fall Fairs, there's the Handicrafts section. This includes painting, knitting, crochet, dressmaking, stained glass, woodcarving, cake decorating.... well, whatever your talent is, there's a class for you to enter.
I made my way straight to the quilt display.
This Champion Quilt was hand stitched..... each scrap of colour is a separate fabric.
.... and this one... well! It knocked me speechless. Grand Champion Quilt of the Fair. Semi-circular bottom end, corners the top end, machine stitched, I love the colours!
I have a quilt half finished... it's been that way for the past five years. Better get on with it ready for the 2008 Fair.
