Quilt Entry Categories
- Our new categories are based on techniques rather than size.
- You will enter your quilt in ONE CATEGORY ONLY. Many quilts have a mixture of techniques but it will be your choice which category you want to feature. The committee would only change your category choice if it were simply wrong such as putting your quilt in the hand work category when there is no hand work in your quilt.
- You may enter more than one quilt in a category.
