    Wow, I would just make another one so you are within the guidelines.

    Happy Quilting

    if your quilt was recognized by someone who knows when you made it, i suppose you could be excluded from entering other contests. is it worth the chance?

    and every time you looked at that quilt, you would feel guilty. imo

    "I looked up the rules for entering a judged quilt contest. The rules state the quilt entered can only be no older than the year, 2008. My quilt was finished in 2007. " ???? Are you asking us to condone you entering a quilt that doesn't fit the rules??? I'm not sure I really understand what this posting is about ????

    I guess the real question is can you live with yourself if you enter it?

    I think if the rules say no earlier than 2008 then it would be cheating to enter a quilt from 2007. I couldn't morally break the rules.

    You have to decide if you can live with the fact you finished it and just didn't tell them when. I think it would be wrong.

    I don't think you should enter the quilt finished in 2007 when the rules say not before 2008. I think that would be cheating.

    If you had to ask...you already know the answer.

    I don't think it's really "cheating". I wouldn't lose sleep over it... it's a quilt you're proud of, you haven't shown before, and you want to enter it. Shrug, I would do it (and I'm the type of person who points out when I'm not charged enough at stores and asks for a correction and when someone sent me too many squares in a swap, as soon as I realized that, I got on the computer and emailed her - didn't do anything else first)

    I am sorry, but rules are rules. If you won from lying wouldn't that make it less of a win?

    I woudn't be able to do it. Kind of like shooting a deer the day before or after hunting season. Same thing.
