A quit is defined by 3 layers: top, batting and back with stitching or ties through all three layers to hold them together. Categories are open to all ages. Ribbon winning exhibits previously entered in the Central States Fair are not eligible for competition. Judges decisions are final. Exhibitors may enter as many items as they wish in any listed category for which they qualify. A professional shall be defined as anyone who quilts for hire or who makes quilts to be sold. Ribbons and awards will be presented to the person who enters or owns the quilt. Every precaution will be taken with entries. However, Central States Fair will not be responsible for any losses or damages. Items entered for exhibit must be odor free, clean and free of debris or animal hair. Any items removed from the exhibit before the official end of the Fair will forfeit all ribbons and awards.

Special Awards: Best of Show, Best of Class and possibly Judge’s Choice.
