This is the grand prize winner at the Alaska State Fair, a truly beautiful paper pieced quilt, and well deserving all those ribbons. It, and most of the others on display were hanging from the ceiling. A good way to display a lot of quilts, but tough on the photo opportunities. The volume shows quilting is alive and well in Alaska. The quilts went from one end of the building to the other and then some!
A whole series of quilts were on a separate display area. They had a mini quilt show with a quilter showing all the different quilts and explaining what was unique about these quilts. One of those was made by a gentleman who was in the audience that day and while not receiving a ribbon, still quite nice to see the work of your hands on display and people appreciating the work that went into it.
A nice showing of small quilts. These are only some of the quilts on display, so truly a nice show. They also had quilting demonstrations going on along with all the other fiber artists showing their craft.
More state fair to come.
