Ribbon, Ribbons, everywhere!!

This week was our Plumas-Sierra County Fair.  We always have a great showing of quilts, and this year was no exception.  But, best of all, when walking around the display, I found this!!!

I was so excited; this is the first quilt I've entered that has been finished on my Millennium. I couldn't believe it...a FIRST PLACE RIBBON for me!!!  I was elated.  I know its a County Fair and I know that had this quilt been entered in a "real" show, it wouldn't have won.  But I don't care!!  I WON!!  I'm still doing the happy dance!!

After coming down from the ceiling, I continued my tour around the room and found that five other quilts I'd quilted had ribboned as well.

This one got second:


Another First for a group quilt (its my Guild's Opportunity Quilt). I forgot to take a picture with the ribbon on it *pout*

Second for a group quilt

and another first for this Table Topper.

Does this mean I can advertise as an Award Winning Quilter????

    On the point about no batting, I was wondering the same thing as I was working on baby quilts for an orphanage in Africa. They surely wouldn't need batting, so I went without. It does work, but does it qualify as a quilt?
