Thanks to all those guild members who entered quilts in the 2011 Washington County Fair held in late August, including Ann Roberts, LoVina Payton, Kate Allen, Carla Gay, Katha Carter, and Adele Atha.

Congratulations to the following members for being recognized with special awards:
Carla Gay – Grand Champion/Best of Show
Carla Gay – Champion for Bed Quilts – Machine Quilted
Katha Carter – Champion for Wall Hangings

Thanks to Sager Creek Quilts and Rabbit’s Lair for sponsoring many of the special quilting awards. Q.U.I.L.T. gave two $25 prizes for “Best Applique by Machine” which went to Jenny Johnson and “Best Use of Color” which was awarded to Katha Carter.
If you didn’t enter this year (and you live in Washington County), be sure to watch for the Fair dates in 2012!
