When I was on home leave that summer, I had a chance to go to the museum to see the quilts that were chosen to be entered into the contest. What I learned is that when a fabric company runs a competition, they want you to use all of the fabrics in that particular line. I didn't know this. As a result, the quilts that were chosen to be displayed were very busy, using all 20 or so fabrics from this particular art deco line.
If you ever enter a contest, be very aware of who's running it. And design your quilt accordingly.
