  6. Quilts must have no side smaller than 24" and no side larger than 96".  Quilts are limited by the width and length of 96" due to site limitations.  Quilts wider/longer than 96" will not be accepted.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
  7. Entry must be a single, stand-alone project. No guarantee can be made that any quilt can be hung along with any other quilt.  It may not be framed, mounted or covered.

Quilt Preparations:
  1. Sleeve - Quilts must have a sewn-on 4" open-ended sleeve securely attached to the back of the quilt.  Quilts longer than 90" require the top of the sleeve to be placed 90" from the bottom of the quilt to ensure that the quilt will not touch the floor when hanging, only one sleeve is required.
  2. Label - A quilt label preferred location is the lower-left back corner.  No pinned labels will be accepted.  The quilt label should include the name of the quilt, entrant's full name, address, and phone number.  To ensure impartiality in judging, please apply a fabric flap, sewn or carefully safety pinned on the top edge only, covering the label and above information.  If this is not done the information will be covered with tape.
