Have you decided what quilt(s) you are entering and if it needs copyright permission? Below is a list of designers and publishers we have information for. All “permissions” require proper pattern, book, publisher and designer credit be given. Look in the book or magazine. There may already be a statement that gives you permission to display the quilt. If you need to take the next step, determine who to contact – you may need to contact the publisher as well as the author/designer/artist.Read More →
