AND THE GRAND CHAMPION QUILT WAS MADE BY . . . Janet Elwood of Kiowa. Selected as Grand Champion Quilt of the Barber County Fair, Elwood said she pieced together Batik fabrics and star patterns to make this keepsake. She said you never know what will appeal to a judge. "I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I also received grand champion in sewing for a sweatshirt and reserve grand for a sewing caddy," she said.

Top right: BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF RODEO = A GENUINE SMILE – With pigtails that dance as she wiggles while watching the excitement of the Barber County Rodeo events from a fence-side view, Tatum Howland has fun with her friends. Age 7, Tatum is the daughter of Sheena Howland of Kiowa. Bottom: GRANDMA'S CAKE IS SO GOOD – The best part about a blue ribbon cake at the fair is it has to be eaten after it's judged. Kiowa woman Janet Elwood made the blue ribbon cakes – one banana, the other chocolate. Conveniently her grandsons were at the Barber County Fair in Hardtner, Kansas, just in time to devour some of her sweet treats: (from left) Hudson, 9; age 12 twins Turner and Garrett. They are the sons of Craig and Kelli Killman of Alva. Elwood credits Ann Cargill for baking this year's Grand Champion Cake, a butterscotch swirl.
