    Hee Hee, space invaders, I use to play that years ago. No I don't think so. I was looking at some Tettrus Quilts and it was a site that had all kinds of vidio quilts. I will remember sometime. Also I have a link somewhere that I just got that tells you about copywrite and it is kind of in laymans terms, well as best as it could be. So now that is two things for me to find. :shock: You are really good at disigning, so you should think about it. You disign them anyway, might as well do something with them! And how fun :D

    Layman terms?

    Like I said, I'd like to publish my designs...just not sure how to go about it. Mainly a matter of the legal issues and whatnot. That and I'm not sure how I would get them made...don't really have a decent computer program that could make pattern bookets or draw up the patterns themselves (I don't even have Microsoft Word, let alone EQ or anything else that might be of use to me). And I'd have to print them from home...and the computer and printer isn't mine so Mom wouldn't be too happy about me making all these patterns and wasting her ink...and we don't have a Kinkos or anything like that around here.

    Well keep all your patterns that you have done so far. You never know what the future holds. And also to let you know Kinkos you can get all printing things done online and they will mail to you. If not online you can even call and mail them. There are lots of ways to do things it is just reseach and wanting to do them. :D

    I made my sons split rail fence quilts when they were young. If I can remember how it would go together it would be fun to try the beautiful blue one.

    Oh, I didn't even know you could do that stuff online. Sweet.

    If I were to print and sell patterns and instructions, I'd still need something to draft them up. So far all the patterns for my designs have been drafted on someone else's EQ program.

    Well, now you have some goals and things to work towards, you have to make a work plan now so you can work towards your goals. That will mean doing lots of research into how to achieve your goals, and also, having a job to finaincially aid you in achieving your goals. Sounds like you have a good plan here.

    Barbs right. Could you learn to draw them up right? There is a free pdf program. But do you have a computer or do you use your mom's? I would start saving your designs and like Barb said think how to reach your goals. You found something (and I know other things) that you are really good at, and you enjoy it. That makes it even better! Oh by the way. EQ has contest periodically for disigns and other companies do too. I usually list them in leads. Next time I list one or know of one I will let you know. In the meantime do a quilt contest or sweepstake search. Just think if you won money for one of your designs then you could get the stuff you needed. :D You never know, just one way to try, along with lot's of others. :D

    For the moment, I use the "family computer". I'm hoping to get my own laptop by the end of the year (just one of the 800 goals I have in mind) so I can do my art stuff and play video games whenever I want (its not easy to get into a PC game or get anything done when 4 other people use the same computer you do).

    Draw up my own patterns by hand? Oh, God, no! It'd take me forever to draw one up and it would be nervewracking worrying if I drew everything accurately (believe me, I tried). I'd rather leave the drawing to a good computer program. I'd like to get EQ, but its totally out of my price range right now (not that I really have a price range anyways.)

    Thanks for the info on the contests. I'll look into it when I have the chance (this week's gonna be busy).
