Quilt Entries

 

Quilts are listed in this program in numerical order.  A table at the back of this program cross-references the quilt numbers and the quiltmakers. 

 

Quilts are grouped in the following categories:

·         Applique - predominantly appliquéd quilts made by one or two persons. Applique consists of fabric designs cut of out one cloth and stitched or otherwise applied to the surface of another fabric.

·         Applique - Group - predominantly appliquéd quilts made by a group of 3 or more persons.

·         Merit Hand quilting - quilts entered for the quality of the hand quilting stitches and the quilting design.

·         Merit Machine Quilting - quilts entered for the quality of the machine quilting stitches and the quilting design. Quilting may be made using a domestic or a long-arm machine.

·         Miniature - quilts must measure less than 24 inches on any side.

·         Mixed technique - This category is for quilts that include appliqué and/or piecing but do not fit into other defined categories, including embroidered, crazy, yo-yo, cathedral window, tied, etc.

·         Mixed technique - Group - Group of 3 or more persons.

·         Pieced - Predominantly pieced quilts made by 1 or 2 persons.

·         Pieced - Group - Predominantly pieced quilts made by a group of 3 or more persons.

·         Youth Quilt - this category is reserved for quilts made by youth under 16 years of age.

·         Pictorial - a pictorial quilt is an art quilt that illustrates a recognizable image (i.e. landscape, people, etc); an art quilt is a quilt which reflects substantial deviation from traditional patterns/sets.

 

If someone other than the quiltmaker hand-quilted or machine-quilted an entry, that person is credited for his or her work.  Entrants designated whether they wanted their work judged or displayed without being judged.  They could also choose to have their work considered for the “Best Interpretation of the Theme” award.  This year’s show theme is “Life’s a Trip.”

 

American Quilter’s Society Ultimate Guild Challenge

 

Lakeview quilters entered the AQS Ultimate Guild Challenge with a set of quilts that all met the following criteria:  They had to reflect the theme "Life's a Trip," and be no larger than 50" square.  With 16 on display at Mayfest, the Ultimate Guild Challenge quilts are a reflection of the depth of talent and creativity within our guild.  Quilts that are considered part of the Challenge are designated in this program with the notation AQS Challenge.
