Big Changes for the Quilt Fest Quilt Shows

>This year there are eight classes for the adult portion of the competition. 
>There are no separate categories for pieced, modern, applique, etc. 
>All quilts in a class will be judged against the other quilts in that class and prizes will be awarded in proportion to the entries in the class.
They are:

Freshman – To encourage:  Those entering a major (75+ quilts) quilt show for the 1st time OR

Fairness Clause:  If you have years of experience in an area related to quilting, please bump yourself up a class if your skill level indicates you should.

Experience may include but is not limited to: sewing experience without quilting, quilt shop ownership, pattern production, professional quilting and teaching

This is an honor system.   It is always okay to enter a more experienced class than the chart indicates.

The Co-chairmen of the Quilt Show have the final say on which class a quilt is entered and may change the class that was entered to another as needed to allow all classes to participate.
