Fairfax County Fair Quilt

My next quilt I'm working on is Fairfax County Fair. Lots of fussy cutting (for the borders and corners of borders and centers of blocks, whew!) which I have done and I'm now putting the blocks together! The picture show 3 blocks already done and the pieces of the center of the puzzle!!! It is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.

I also finished the top to a baby Yellow Brick Road all done in pinks for our neighbors grandbaby due this month. It's all pinks and looks just like a girly-girl kind of thing! When Maynard gets it quilted and I get the binding on I'll put up a picture of it. Now I need to get a baby boy one done for the grandbaby of another friend whose grandboy is due in September. I saw some cute panels at Quilt Mercantile on Tuesday while shopping during Sit n Sew. That's a fun part of Sit n Sew!!!!

Speaking of Sit n Sew--------we had a grand time on Tuesday---it was Show and Tell day (First Tuesday) and that's always a neat day---it's so much fun to see what others are doing or have done. Plus we always bring something to share to eat and Tuesday must have been salad day--yummy salads galore. We sure know how to eat!!!!! What fun!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

I like that pattern. I suppose you could make it without fussy cutting the stars, which would be more my style! It looks great so far.

Great blocks Jan. What is it with quiter's and food...we get a little put out when it comes to feeding the family but if we are going to sew with friends it's no big deal to make something? LOL
