Here’s the rest of the Quilt Competition and Judging conversation. This one covers:
• Credit and copyright of designs when inspired by someone else vs. outright plagorism
• Handquilting vs. machine quilting
• Designing using a royalty-free block and calling it “unique”
• Two examples of designs that were plagorized and the original desired were told not to claim their creations as their own
• Using antique designs in designing a quilt – isn’t that considered plagorism?
Let’s start a new topic. Email me your ideas and I’ll present them in a podcast!
My online classes have become Open Term, which means that they start for each registrant on the day that they receive their login and password, rather than being at a schedule time as they were before. What does that mean for you? That you can sign up whenever you’re free and the class will run for YOU either for 12 weeks or 30 days, depending on which class you sign up for! Hooray!
So, if you go on vacation for two weeks, you won’t miss anything – but will be able to view each lesson at your convenience. Any time, any day it’s convenient.
Here’s the scoop:
The Quilter’s Palette – a sampler of techniques (12 weeks)
So unique, a true learning sampler.
Quiltmaking 101 – a sampler of fine quilt making (12 weeks)
Learn everything there is to making a quilt from A-Z. Great for beginning quilters or those who have been quilting for years. You will learn everything I know about quiltmaking in this workshop.
My most popular workshop: Exploring Fabric Choices, a very special workshop
When have you ever taken a class in how to choose your fabrics? Never? Oh, I’m not surprised. But this is the most important workshop you will ever take. (The quilt above are the blocks that used in my demo on The Quilt Show, episode 209)
It’s available to sign up for until September 30th, for 30 day access to the class, then, like all good things in the Disney Vault, it’s going away for an undetermined time.
You can click on the links above for each class. Exploring Fabric Choices doesn’t have an introductory video, but you can see a sample on The Quilt Show.
In other news, guess what’s coming?…
Wanna go with me? You can! Here’s the link to my tour itinerary.
Can I go with you if I don’t live in San Jose? YES! You can join us from where you live, anywhere in the world, but you need to register under my tour link.
How many people can go with you? I am limited to 40 participants, so don’t delay if you’re interested in attending.
Is it going to be like all of the other big quilt shows I go to? What’s different about this one that would make me interested in going? The festival will be held in the quaint village of Galway on the NUI campus, not in a convention center. Please visit the website (link above) to see all of the events and activities planned by the show organizers. My itinerary is unique to other tour guides itineraries. And there is a special non-quilters program for those who don’t quilt to come along with you!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
