how do you pick the category in a show?
I entered my first show and THEY put me in the machine quilted category -
though the majority of the quilting was done by hand, not all of it was! I
machine quilted around my stars and in the border.

I went to the local fair to see the quilts last night, and I was
bewildered by which categories people put things in.
If you machine pieced a mosaic 'picture' in squares, then applique a big
lacework thing over it, would you pick 'applique' or 'pieced'? (I
And the boundary between "baby (smaller than twin)" and "wallhanging"
a mighty fine line possible only visible to the beholder's eye. I guess
advantage is that since you can only make 1 entry in a category, it kind
gives you 2 for 1.
If you made a "baltimore" style applique of blocks and strip pieced the
border, what would you pick? the maker last night picked
which made no sense to me; I would have picked applique since the
'baltimore' stuff seemed the dominant design element. "Miscellaneous"
always a tough category to win; and it seems like you're always
apples to oranges. It seemed to me the place for the yo-yos, the
quilts and others that aren't really 'flat', or maybe quilts or
made of non-traditional materials, like natural rabbit skins.
BTW, my quilts did GREAT. One got 'champion' and the other got 'reserve
champion'. They are the 1st 2 quilts in the web site below if you're
interested in seeing them.
