It was a banner day for ribbons. My friend who had submitted applesauce and salsa took first place and honorable mention, respectively. My family and friends all love her applesauce, but now she has proof that it's really good stuff.

All of the quilts there were magnificent. I loved all of the patterns and color combinations. I wish the tags were a bit closer to the ground, so I could see what category each one belonged to. I also would have liked to have gotten a closer look at the stitching, especially the hand quilted ones. On the other hand, I appreciated that the quilts were out of reach. I was so busy looking at the quilts I nearly missed some of the other great artwork at eye-level. There was a lot of talent packed in that hall.

Overall, it was a good trip. I'm looking forward to pick-up day and finding out if the judges jotted down any comments about my quilt.
