Blanket Permission List

I’m sure that many of you are already working on, or have already completed, quilts to enter in Maine Quilts 2024. It is critical that you get permission from the designer for all quilts entered into the show that are not original or in the public domain. Usually this is a very simple process. All “blanket permissions” require that proper pattern, book, publisher, and/or designer credit be given. It is so easy ~ just go to the website, select Maine Quilts, look under Quilt Registrationand scroll down to “Blanket Permission List” to see if your favorite designer is listed.  If you have any questions about getting permission from a designer, please contact me and we’ll figure it out together.
