I am just now getting to this forum thread and am too lazy to read 15 pages worth to see if the answers are already there! First of all, when I go to the TQS challenge page, some of the quilts have prices and some don't. Does that mean that if there is not a price posted that it has already sold? or what?
Also, is there an easy to understand link somewhere to understanding all we need to know about copyright issues? I stupidly thought that if you bought a pattern you could do whatever you wanted to do with the completed project - but apparently not. Am I correct to assume that any traditional block would not be a copyright issue?
I think what you've done here is amazing and I do want to participate, both in making quilts and buying them, but it will have to wait until fall as my spring and summer are pretty well spoken for.
Thanks for organizing this,
The TQS page on the AAQI's website shows the quilts that have been donated, photographed and info processed. The ones with prices are up for sale right way on their website. The ones without, they might be holding for an auction of for sale at a quilt show.
Copyright issues. Woof. that's a big one. Older traditional blocks like, 9 patch, bow tie, ...etc are public domain and hold no copyright. If you have purchased a pattern, I would suggest looking at your pattern for any copyright info or contact info and get permission through them.
I will send Ami an email on this and see if she can help.
