I love the 4-H fair in our town. I am not a farmer and I actually never lived in a place that had 4-H clubs when I was the right age to participate. We do live in the country and I love watching the crops grow in the fields around our house.
For the past two years, I and some of the ladies from my quilt club have demonstrated hand quilting on a frame in the Agricultural Museum on the fairgrounds. The blocks were made and donated by the quilters in our local quilt club. Another member put the quilt together and we set up the frame in the museum.
Anyone who came by and wanted to put some stitches was welcome to do so. Altogether, I'd guess that 50 or more people had something to do with putting this quilt together. Because we did most of the quilting only at the fair, it took us a while to finish it. But finally, it is done.
