Question Quilt names and Designers?

I went to a Quilt Show where the quilts had the Owners name and the LAQ name and few pattern names. There were no patterns designers names on any quilts. Question- I thought in a Show the show tags were to have the pattern name and designers name, also? Is this a local option or should the pattern name and designer be listed?

I wouldn't think that the designer of the pattern should be listed. It's up to the quilt maker to write what she wants on the card. From what I understand, whatever you have created from a pattern is your work and you don't have to give credit to the pattern designer if you don't want to.

There's also a good chance that the quilts without a pattern name are original designs or they're blocks in the public domain and don't have a designer.

ditto to Scissor Queen, that it could be that the quilts are originals.


I do believe in credit given where credit is due ... so if you have a concern speak with the show organizers about it.

It probably all depends on the form the organizer's used. Some ask for pattern and source and others don't. Like QuiltE, I believe in giving credit where credit is due. I will list pattern name and source of pattern if it isn't original. I have even gone so far that on a quilt I designed myself I credited "Inspired by" and listed the book where I got inspiration from.

The only time I see pattern names is if the quilt is a Vendor display and they sell the patterns there. I'm thinking of going to a quilt show in Denver but need to try to call and see if they intend to have any quilts on display. The last show I went to, they had hung them ceiling height!! What a waste of my time.

While most shows now require a pattern designer's name (if any) and even a written release in many cases, that information is not generally made public in the display. Information revealed often depends on the size of the show too.

I try to do this as well. The person who was so creative does deserve some recognition.

In the shows I have gone to I have only seen the makers and the quilters name on the labels.
