Is it ~REALLY~ a 'Quilt'?
My guild's quilt show was this past weekend... a great show & a fun time. For the first time we had paid certified judges (as opposed to ribbons bestowed in the various categories by vote of the viewers).
One of the members who helped the judges during their process told me that a judge told her that her tied quilt (bed size) was in the wrong category.... that it should be in the Potpourri Category.... and that it "wasn't really a quilt". I was taken aback with that statement! Not really a quilt? That's a very old time ~traditional~ quilt, imo. (The gal who told me this didn't seem to be the least bit nonplussed by it.)
I know that categories can be sliced & diced many different ways (maybe not in the big quilt-world, but at least in our guild we've had many a debate on how to do it & where to put what.)
It's possible the gal misquoted the judge, or misunderstood. But at any rate, I am wondering if anyone knows if there is any validity to a tied quilt not being a "real" quilt?
