The winners of Dave's Garden County Fair 2011: Favorite quilt!
1st Place with 165 points:
From fmlyof5: "This quilt was made for me for my birthday. I do cat fostering, so my friend made me this beautiful cat quilt which features Buster, a black cat, that we fostered and then adopted. A special gift from a special friend."
2nd Place with 156 points:
From Nanth333: "I made this art quilt of my daughter's garden as a wall piece. Actual pictures of the kids and parents were printed on material and added. I wish I had counted the number of pieces- fence pickets, flowers, stones, etc , as all were individually printed on cloth and sewn to the base. Labor of love."

From gannierosie: "My grandsons love trains, so I improvised a pattern, and used lots of left overs to make them their "choo choo" quilt. It is hand machined since I knew it was going to go through the ringer. Bright colors to brighten up their day. "

From PotEmUp: "I don't live in the right zone or have a greenhouse big enough for my very own Amorphophallus titanum, so my wife made me a fabric version for our wall. The background represents glass panes from the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. "
