🐶National Dog Day Quilt Party🐕

Happy National Dog Day!!! Susan @QuiltFabrication is having a Dog Day Quilt Link Party to celebrate!!! Link up your pups through August 31st! 
Do you know Paw Patrol? It's a children's cartoon that's been around since 2013, and it's our granddaughter's favorite!!!
It features 10 year-old Ryder and his pals, a group of dogs who are out to save the world!!! Each character has a different role to play, like Chase the German Shepherd who is a police pup, and Rocky the mixed breed who is a recycling and handyman pup!

With the Paw Patrol in mind, I made my granddaughter a Paw Patrol quilt for our recent visit!!!⤵️

What the Judge 👩🏼‍⚖️ Said, 2023

We just had our county fair, August 7th through August 13th! Having grown up in 4-H, I still get the urge to enter my projects when fair time rolls around!!! 🎡
This year I entered 7 quilts and 1 crocheted item. It was the same judge as last year, who had a lot of comments. The judge has scribes that do the writing for her. Below I list the category it was entered in, the ribbon it received, the judge's comments in quotes, and my response below that. We don't get to talk with the judge personally and we don't see the comments until we pick up our items at the end of the fair and take them home.

I'll start with my crocheted selvage rug--although it's crocheted, it's made from selvages I cut off of my quilt fabrics all year round! ⤵️ Here it is in a display case, folded into fourths. The finished size is 24" x 41".
