    That is GORGEOUS! A friend said she would teach me to quilt. I knew in 20 minutes that this was NOT the craft for me. So I know enough to know that what you've created is VERY difficult, and worthy of that blue ribbon!

    Congratulations!

    Thank you for the comments, they are truly thoughtful. I just want to shout it from the roof top. I had someone at our local county fair make a statement that I did not deserve the Blue ribbon there, so now that it won at the State Fair...I am saying ha ha to the haters
    It did take me 10 months to complete.

    My mother is a quilter, so I know the effort that represents. It is stunningly beautiful. I think those other comments were just sour grapes. You've proven that it's a prize-winning piece of art. Well done!
    Count your blessings!

    Oh my captain! Your quilt is beautiful. I love how you incorporated the standard block patterns with freeform designs. I think it represents Kansas beautifully. I have quilts that my grandmother's, aunt's and mom made from scraps of fabrics. I cherish them and the stories that they tell. Congratulations!
