El Dorado County Fair 2013

Here I am with my
"Modern Starburst" Quilt that I entered in the El Dorado County Fair.  I didnt win any prizes, but my goal was to show people that quilting can be young and modern and bright and fun, not just older style  patchwork.  I hope that many young people saw what can be done with all the beautiful modern fabics that are out there.  Thanks to  Melissa Corry of "Happy Quilting" for having this QAL so that I could make this wonderful quilt...

and heres a few more pictures from the fair...
