Conditions of Entry

This year there will be an online entry form available for members. We will also have options available to those who cannot enter online.  By May 2020 we will have some helpful directions available to you to assist in entering your quilt in this exhibition. The information that is entered into the online entry form will be used for labeling your quilt for display so it is essential that the information is entered correctly. 

  1. Entry is only open to financial members of Capital Quilters as at 28 June 2020.  Only financial members of Capital Quilters are eligible for prizes.

 

  1. All entries must have been completed since January 2018.

 

  1. Quilts must have

    • 10cm deep hanging sleeve attached to the back (top). If the quilt is heavy, or over 2m square, please leave a gap in the hanging sleeve of at least 7cm.  This will enable us to use an additional “S” hook in the centre and prevent sagging. 

    • Label on the lower back (Left hand side when viewed from back) with the quilter’s name and quilt title with a piece of fabric pinned over the top of the label to cover label during judging.

 

  1. The exhibition committee and judges reserve the right to change the category in which any item is entered if it is deemed necessary.

 

  1. The exhibition committee reserves the right to not hang any quilt.  

 

  1. We want your quilts to look their best, so the maximum size limit will be strictly enforced. Any quilt that is over the maximum size limit of 2.4m will not be hung.  

 

  1. Insurance is the responsibility of the quilt owner.

 

  1. Every submitter is to rank their entries in order of preference for hanging.  If exhibition space is limited lower ranked items may not be hung (last resort only).

 

  1. President’s Challenge – It’s a Bug's Life - Make a fabric item that reflects the theme “It’s a Bug's Life”.  The item can be 3D but must be able to be hung for display. It can be made by more than one person. All makers must be named on the entry form. You can create an original design or use a pattern designed by someone else. If the design is not original, you must acknowledge the designer on the entry form. Quilting can be done by hand or machine.

 

  1. Build It Up Challenge - You must make a quilt (ie three layers secured by stitching) which features a pieced log cabin or court house steps block. The quilt can be 3D but must be able to be hung for display. It can be made by more than one person. All makers must be named on the entry form. You can create an original design or use a pattern designed by someone else. If the design is not original, you must acknowledge the designer on the entry form. Quilting can be done by hand or machine.

 

  1. Group quilt is a quilt made by two or more people. This category includes any quilts which have been commercially quilted, quilted by someone other than the maker, quilts made by more than one person or group quilts like Block of the Month.

 

  1. Textile Art piece can be any item made with fabric, for example decoupage, bags and dolls. 

 

  1. Quilt Design. You will be asked to reference your quilt design. It can be an original design, from a pattern or kitset or Block of the Month or inspired by a photo or quilt. It is important that you correctly answer this question. 

 

  1. Quilt story. You will be asked to supply a brief explanation (maximum of 75 words) of your inspiration for the quilt and any other interesting details e.g. who it was made for. We suggest you have this in a document ready to paste into your online entry.

 

  1. Display only. There will be an option to select for display only - this means that you do not wish to have your item judged, and it will not be eligible to win any prizes.

 

  1. Delivery of quilts.  Entries to be delivered to July Guild Meeting at Waterloo School Hall, Lower Hutt on Saturday 25th July 2020 between 1pm to 3pm.
