Many thanks to our anonymous friend for the new banners promoting the guild's annual quilt show. We LOVE them!
The show runs in conjunction with Pacific Grove's Good Old Days festivities along Lighthouse Avenue.

Application for 2019 quilt entries and judging are open and due by February 4, 2019. In order to enter quilts for display in the quilt show, you must be a member of the Monterey Peninsula Quilters Guild. Please read the entry form for the exception.
Judged Quilt Awards - Ribbons can be given in each category, and an overall Best of Show award will be chosen from the first place winners. Viewer's Choice Awards - During the show, attendees can vote for their favorite quilt. Viewer's Choice awards are given at the May guild meeting.
In this issue of the MPQG newsletter you will find the Entry Form (page 12) and the Judging Application Form (page 13) for the 2019 Quilt Show. You will see there have been some changes made in the categories (page 14) we will be using for judging the quilt. Several members of the Judging Committee met to discuss not only your comments from the 2018 Quilt Show, but also the categories used in other quilt shows. Decisions were made as follows:
Definitions for the Judging Categories are on a separate page included with the Judging Application Form, for your use in determining which category to use for your quilt. Please Read These Definitions! (This page does not have to be turned in with your Application Form.)
Other news: We’ve also added one ribbon per judge for Challenge Quilt Judge’s Choice; the Judge will be able to select her Choice from any of the Challenge Quilts, not just those submitted for judging. Best of Show will be selected only from those quilts awarded First Place Ribbons Judge’s Choice may be selected from any quilt in the show, whether judged or not.
Please note that your Entry and Judging Application Forms, along with a 4 x 6” glossy photo of each quilt, can be submitted as soon as you know your quilt will be completed and that you plan to have it in the Quilt Show. Early submissions are much appreciated, but the absolute deadline in February 4, 2019.
