2011 West Overton Museums Quilt Show RULES
1. All quilts submitted to this competition must be real quilts. We define a quilt as three layers of fiber held together by hand quilting or machine quilting, with the exception of novelty quilts such as Cathedral Window patterns. 2. A non-refundable entry fee per quilt must accompany each entry form. Fees are used to offset costs and purchase additional insurance for your property. Entry fee for museum members is $15.00; non-museum members are $20.00; late registration (any entry forms received after May 17) is $25.00 for both members and non-members. Quilts must be complete, clean and in exhibit condition. 3. Quilts displayed in previous West Overton shows are not eligible for judging. However, previous quilts may be displayed in the show without being judged. This is encouraged. A complete and signed entry form must be submitted for each entry prior to its delivery. If you do not register your quilt by May 17, the entry fee per quilt will be $25.00 for members and nonmembers. THERE IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE! 4. Quilts must remain on display through the duration of the show and may not be removed for any reason prior to the designated pick-up time. Quilts which are for sale will be given to the buyer after show ends or may be moved to the West Overton Gift Shop and placed on consignment. 5. Quilts must be constructed and quilted by the person or persons named on the entry form. In the collaborative category, all persons who helped make the quilt must also be listed. Failure to do this may result in disqualification. 6. Quilts must have an approximate 2” x 3” swatch of fabric with the quilt title, name, address and phone number clearly printed and sewn to a lower back corner. Another piece of fabric should be basted over the name at the top edge only, as a cover during judging. 7. Approved NQA identification techniques are also acceptable. 8. Quilts must be dropped off on time and in a non-returnable bag or box. Entries arriving after drop off times are subject to disqualification and entry fees will not be refunded. West Overton Museums will not be responsible for keeping track of the bags, pillow cases, comforter cases, etc. that quilts arrive in. All quilts will be returned in a clear bag. 9.A sleeve must be attached to the back edge of the quilt for hanging. Stitching must support the weight of the quilt. A quilt should not exceed 102” in length. If the quilt is larger than 102”, install the hanging sleeve at the 102” mark so the quilt does not drag on the floor. 10. The quilt judge reserves the right to not award all prizes in any category and re-categorize or disqualify any entry. Sleeve Construction: Instructions: Use a piece of fabric the width of the quilt by 11”. Hem the sides, fold lengthwise and sew a ½” seam. Hand-stitch both top and bottom edges of the sleeve casing to the top edges of the quilt back. Sleeves must be this size to accommodate hanging rods. Sleeves must be within 102” of the bottom of the quilt so it won’t touch the floor. Directions to West Overton Museums
