Quilt contests are no stranger to controversy based on the subjectivity of judging.
This past weekend I recorded HQ Podcast Episode 40 where I spoke about the 1933 Chicago World's Fair Quit Contest Controversy. I discovered this topic in The Quilt Life with an article called Hot Controversy - Of The Quilt-Contest Kind by Merikay Waldvogel in the August 2012 edition. This new episode is now available on iTunes, Podbean and Stitcher Radio.
Here is the quilt made by Ida Mae Stow whom I spoke about in regards to her frustration over the judging process for "an unusual design to depict and commemorate the Century of Progress".
