    Whatever the reason. it is a real fun quilt!!!
    A quilt can also be rejected or be undisqualified because it was entered in the wrong class. it is the responsibility of of the entrant to put their quilts in the correct category. If you mis-enter- to bad -they do not "correct" the entry.
    I few years ago i entered a quilt in "machine emb. " but the judges considered it"machine quilted". it was not considered for judging because they felt i had entered it in the wrong class. disappointing? yes, but it was ultimately MY responsibility to see it was entered correctly.
    when you enter a competition you are asking for not only your work to be judged but be compared to similar work. If you're going to be offended by comments from the judges-don't enter. It's not a personnal attack.

    I think it's sweet. Why do you want a cake to flow? I put toothpicks in my cakes so they can't flow. :lol:

    I think it flows beautifullu. It is probably too creative for them, way above their heads and their small minds. I think you did a great job and you should be very proud of yourself. It was their loss.

    Perhaps the SMALL county judges don't understand that all quilts aren't "traditional" that some quilts express creative designs that fit the person they are made for.

    I think it's whimsicle, creative and quite clever! :thumbup:

    That's a different one. Didn't think a quilt was judged
    BEFORE beinng entered. What old narrow minded people.
    I like your quilt and your friend is a very luck person.

    I trust you have taken heart from all the wonderful comments given here, your quilt is fabulous, if I was given this I would cherish it, phooey to the judges, just coz it was not to their particular taste!
