Quilts at North Carolina State Fair 2012

These are a few of the hundreds of quilts at the NC State Fair in October 2012. The quilts this year were very pretty. The quality of the quilts have improved a lot this past decade that I have been living here. 
The next 3 photos are from this quilt that has these lovely creatures embroidered among the leaves. See the 2 photos below. Now look back on the top photo and you can see the other animals camouflaged among the leaves. 

 Bellow are more quilts that have ribbons.

Gorgeous applique and hand quilting

Quilt made with man ties
The quilts are displayed in a very small area, and viewing them as well as photographing them was very difficult. With so many beautiful quilts, they need to consider to increase the display are a little bit.

    that first quilt is really neat. thanks for sharing.
