Only completed quilts and quilted garments made in whole or in part by WQmembers may be entered.2. The guild's insurance covers a maximum of $500 per item. Members must carry theirown insurance for any quilt valued above this amount.3. All exhibitors are required to volunteer a minimum of three hours during the show.4. All entries must have a permanent label sewn to the back of the quilt or inside thegarment. Please include the quilt title, your name, town and date.5. All quilts need a sleeve no less than 4” finished width sewn securely to the back, and apiece of lattice for hanging. (If you don't bring one with your quilt, we can't hang it!)If the quilt is more than 50" wide, divide the sleeve in two, leaving a gap in thecenter. To make a sleeve, begin with an 8" piece of fabric the width of your quilt.Hem the ends and sew into a tube. This should make the sleeve slightly narrowerthan the quilt, allowing the holes in the lattice to show. Stitch the top and bottom ofthe tube to the back of your quilt with the top close to the binding. The lattice willslide through this tube. Lattice can be purchased at most lumberyards and cut to thelength you want. Lattice, also called strapping slat, is approximately 1/4" thick by 11/2" to 2" wide. Sand the ends lightly and drill holes at each end, near the top of thestrip, and one additional hole in the middle for large quilts. A 1/8" to 1/4" drill bitwill provide a large enough sized hole. Write your name and the name of the quilt onthis lattice. If you enter an unusual piece, it must be hangable. If you're in doubt,consult the quilt co-chairs.
