First Impression: Visual impact, general appearance is neat and clean
Design & Creativity: Fabric & colors complement the overall design. The surface design is pleasing and balanced. The quilting enhances the entire quilt.
Quilt Workmanship: Piecing is accurate, points meet precisely. If there is applique design, stitches are invisible and add to the overall design. Quilt top, pattern, borders, and setting will relate to each other.
Quilting: Quilting stitches are even and adequate. Pattern markings are invisible. Quilting design fits the space it is designed to fill.
Quilt Back: Backing is smooth, showing no large skipped stitches, loops, or knots.
Binding: Binding or edge is well made and fits with the quilt style. Corners are mitered preciesly or are rounded and smooth. If envelope style is used, corners are precise, square, and even. Binding uniformly full of filler. Binding is sewn on securely. Matching thread is used with invisible stitches, if hand sown.
Quilts may be either hand or machine quilted. If a quilt is completed by one or more persons, the names of those who participated in the project must be noted on the entry form. Accepted sewing techniques include: embroidered, pieced or whole cloth, textile painting, applique (hand or machine), and cross stitch. HAND OR MACHINE QUILTS WILL BE JUDGED ON THEIR OWN MERITS, AND NOT AGAINST EACH OTHER.
