A little quilting

In the last couple of weeks I quilted three quilts. Although I’m pretty careful about taking pics of every single quilt, I cannot find the photos of the most beautiful black and white quilt with a red inner border. Here are the other two which are also really beautiful. Each was quilted with a pantograph. The quilt done in Fall colors is for a fund raiser for the Cancer Center.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. These do not look like original sewing patterns. Should you be identifying them and as well the designer and name of the pantograph before ‘publishing’ pictures. I know copyright is a slippery slope especially in the quilting world but please give credit where it is due….as a professional that is just the correct thing for you to do.

    1. Hi Margaret,
      I am usually very compulsive about identifying patterns as I am a pattern designer myself, but did not identify these. I will go back and edit the blog to correct the oversight. Thanks for the reprimand. Also, please see my response to Sherry.

  2. On facebook I publish pictures of nearly everything I make. And I never give credit to the designer or the name of the pantograph before “publishing” pictures. The only time I give credit is when I make an entry to the state fair. I think when I buy a pattern or find a free pattern, and then make the quilt, that gives me the right to publish a picture of mine.

    1. Yes, Sherry, you are so right. Most of the quilts we make are in the public domain. When I am quilting for others as I did this time, and the quilt is made for personal use and not being sold or entered in a competition and no instructions or pattern is provided to the public, there is no requirement for identifying it. It is simply a courtesy. Actually, it is helpful to the designer because it promotes their work, whether named or not.

  3. I’m getting really tired of all the controversy about identification of absolutely everything to do with each quilt. I don’t see why anyone should expect you to provide complete information about a quilt that you have been hired to quilt for someone else.
    It seems that the pendulum swings from one extreme to the other without much reasonable middle ground.
