Happy Halloween and a Crazy Quilt

I love crazy quilts and have planned for years to make one.  This one is an antique that I saw on display when I went to the Iron County fair.  I think it is beautiful.  Look at all that embroidery.

 Happy Halloween everyone.  Scones with honey butter for everyone at my house tonight.  Everyone is welcome.

Iron County Fair Displays

I went to the Iron County fair last month and thought you may want to see a small sampling of the things that were there.  Our county fair is small so it was nice to see all the things that Iron County residents have been making.

These are made with tube socks.  My daughter thought they were wonderful.

People that do this sort of needle work must have great eyes.  These were amazing.

The kids are great artists.  Nice work.

Very well done.

Someone was selling these hats.  I thought they were very fun.

The displays were very well done.  

The herbs were hanging from an old bed frame with springs.

I wish I could do this.

You would not believe all the Lego displays.  

Of course my Sophie loves the Barbies.

It is a fun fair to go to.  The parade was fun.  It is a bit longer than the Panguitch Parades though but I had a great time there.

Iron County Fair Quilts

Last month I went to the Iron County Fair in Parawon, Utah.  It was very fun.  It is also quite a bit larger than our fair.  They have a nice display of quilts that I thought I would share with you.

Isn't this a fun Halloween quilt.  Now I do not know any of the people that made these quilts.  They are all talented and I am so glad they were willing to let us all see what they made.

This one was just a quilt on display.  It is very old and is it gorgeous.  

I loved how they hung quilts along with the vegetable displays.  They know how to make it look so nice.

They had antiques around to help display stuff too.  Very nice.

I quite like this one.  If any of you know what the pattern is please let me know.

This one was really well done.  I like the colors.  

This reminded me of some quilts my sister did.  I really like it.

Of course I love the wool projects.

This is the Drindle Dress.  It is one of the most lovely quilts.  My friends have taken this class.  It is a nice quilt.  The whole fair was a lot of fun for me.  They didn't have animals at this fair but I still had a great time there with my girls.  They had some interesting food booths that were fun to try.  I had some ribbon fries that were fun.  My girls really enjoyed that too.  Their fair is Labor Day weekend, I think, every year.  If you are close plan on going.  It is fun.
