I went to the State Fair this weekend. The last time that I went, I was probably about 6 years old. It is definitely worth the trip to see the quilts on display( and the fried snickers bar, mmmmm). I was told that they had twice as many Quilts entered this year as last year, but to be honest, I thought there should be more. For how many people are active in this art in Utah there could be many more. So get those entries together for next year ladies!
The quilts that I did see were absolutely fabulous! The one above was made by Mary Buchanan who purchased the Botanika Block of the Month at our shop and came to Applique Addicts for most of last year to work on it. It is breathtaking, and deserving of the ribbon she won.
Here are a few more of my favorites, I hope you can see the artists name in the picture so that they receive credit for their work.
There is also an array of beautiful knit and crochet items, these 2 afgans below were my favorites.
I really had to restrain myself around the animals. I was seriously contemplating how I could manage a goat in my back yard. They were only $35 , you can barely buy dinner for that, let a lone a wonderful goat friend who will continually weed my garden for me. Okay, so I am crazy, no goat for me. But maybe a bunny? I was so close to pocketing this soft little guy below. But then I started picturing Henry and Leo chasing the poor creature around and around like they do with each other day after day. Oh well, maybe there is a farm in my future.
