GXQ's next Quilt Show: Summer Fair coming soon!

Jul 20, 2011
Pin It The heat of summer is in full swing and  it's just about time for the county fairs...

It's almost time for Gen X Quilters' next Quilt Show  -

Summer Fair: A Quilt and Recipe Show!

EDIT:  The Fair starts today!  Click here for the fun.
Don't know about you, but the county fairs are pretty big here in the midwest.

I've always thought it would be fun to enter a quilt in a show at a Fair.  But the fair entries here tend to be very traditional.  Cooking and recipes for jams, jellies, barbeque, baked goods, you name it(!) are also are also pretty neat competitions.

So with the sweltering heat outside, let's make a little modern County Fair right here in blogland. In the air conditioning of your living room, paruse the entries. Enjoy some quilty inspiration and some down home cookin'.  I know I've seen plenty of good recipes on quilty blogs!

This Summer Fair has 2 parts.

1. Quilts

2. Recipes

Each person may share 1 quilt and/or 1 recipe in the linkies next week. If you don't have a blog, use flickr to participate!  I'd like to include as many as we can! (quilts and recipes don't have to be new - just make a new Summer Fair post)

Summer Fair: A Quilt and Recipe Show will begin next Wednesday, July 27, 2011.  All the specifics for linking up your entries will be in the kickoff post next week.

And what is a quilt show without prizes???  No voting this time.....  if you link up a quilt, you get one entry.  If you also link up a recipe, you'll get another entry.  That's 2 chances per person to claim some awesome prizes!!  The details of the sponsored prizes will be given next week.

Summer Fair's wonderful sponsors will be providing some juicy giveaways.  A HUGE Thank You to Gen X Quilters' Summer Fair sponsors!

So grab a button and your favorite summer quilt and recipe.  Take some pictures and get ready to link up next week!  Join in the fun starting Wednesday, July 27!

  1. It's winter here in Australia so some Summer fun is just what I need! I'll be linking up!

  2. Sounds fun . . .but it's during our actual county fair and I'll probably be pretty MIA next week! (4-H you know?)

  3. What a great idea - can't wait to see what everyone enters!

  4. Well this sure sounds fun! Love this idea! I might just join in with my favorite summer recipe! Not sure my quilts are good enough to enter but I might get the courage to put one of my favorites up there. We shall see :)

  5. Sounds like fun... I'll join in.


  6. Sounds FUN! Food & quilts - my favorite things!

  7. I'm in! I finally finished quilting my latest newest quilt and this will spur me on to get the binding on in this blazing heat wave. Nothing like a deadline for motivation! Thanks for hosting this fun summer fair.

  8. This will be a blast. I am already thinking about what recipe and what quilt to enter in the fair. Our county fair is going on right now in Orange County, CA.

  9. Love the idea :)
