Default 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

I went to the local fair to see the quilts last night, and I was

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

'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.
