Funfair

I grew up in Kentucky and one of the best things that happened in August was the State Fair! I loved everything about it: the quilt exhibits, the prize pigs, the horse show, the food on sticks (corn dogs, cotton candy, candy apples, corn on the cob on the stick), and the rides. I couldn't decide on just one aspect of the fair to share, so my tag has them all and serves as an advertisement for The Kentucky State Fair! Come one, come all! I drew most of the tag, cutting some pieces out and using mounting tape to give them dimension. The little quilt is actually a piece that i painted and quilted on my sewing machine.
Enjoy the fair!

  8. We did not have State Fairs in Canada but I always loved the thought of them (especially when I saw them in the movies LOL). Great Tag!

  9. A State Show must be something like a County Show back home. Prizes for the best veg, unsuitable for diabetic foods, country crafts and of course the fun fair. Love your tag brought back some great memories
