In the SA National Quilt Competitions, quilters who are Master Quilters are restricted to enter work into the Master categories where there is a distinction between Standard and Master in the category.


They may enter work in the other competition categories in accordance with the stipulated criteria, and which apply if and when there is no distinction between Standard and Master.
