2022 QUILT SHOW CATEGORIES
Entry rules and registration forms will be available on the guild website in March, 2022.
You must hold a valid membership (2021-2022) in the CTQG to enter your quilts in the show and be eligible for prizes. Your entry must not have been displayed at a previous CTQG show.
We will be offering the opportunity for members to have their quilts judged. We have arranged for an apprentice judge to assist in this regard. She will provide written comments on judged quilts. For judging there will be a selection of 2 quilt categories which will be: Bed quilt (any type) and/or Wall Quilt. There will be a modest fee of $10/quilt for these quilts to offset the honorarium paid to the apprentice judge. More information re: Quilt Judging to come in future newsletters .
Here are the details as to what quilts can be submitted to the Show: Members may submit up to four quilts. In order to take into consideration comments from the last show that quilts were placed too close together, members may submit one quilt in each of the Large, Medium and Modern categories. This limitation should allow us to expand the space in between rows and giving viewers a better opportunity to admire the quilts. Quilts can be submitted in the following categories (dimensions & criteria for each are provided):
1. LARGE: a quilt with a perimeter of 350” or greater
2. MEDIUM: a quilt with a perimeter of 349” or less
3. WALL QUILTS: A quilt that is designed to be hung for decorative purposes, with a perimeter of 180” or less.
4. MINIATURE: The quilt must have a perimeter less than 96” total. If blocks are used they must be 4” or less. A bound full-size block is not considered a miniature, neither is a hexie quilt made with pieces ½” or greater. The overall pattern must show a miniaturization of a quilt.
5. ASSORTED QUILT ITEMS*: Quilted clothing, placemats and runners, pillows, etc.
6. MODERN: Modern quilters embrace functionality, simplicity and minimalism. Characteristics might include: use of bold colours and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid colour, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work.
7. CHILDREN’S THEME/CRIB: Intended use would be for a child’s room either as a wall hanging or a small bed quilt. All techniques.
Members may submit up to four quilts. In order to take into consideration comments from the last show that quilts were placed too close together, members may submit one quilt in each of the Large Bed, Medium Bed and Modern categories. This limitation should allow us to expand the space in between rows and giving viewers a better opportunity to admire the quilts.
Our space is limited, so we may have to limit entries to three. Please indicate on your registration form which quilt you prefer to be withdrawn. The committee reserves the right to move an entry to a different category if appropriate.
Please, ENTER your quilts! Your quilts make the show a success!
