    Sounds very interesting. It'll be fun to see the response.

    Let's see, do I have any quilts that I haven't showed you? Nope, with the exception of the one I quilted recently and not happy with the quilting...I am planning on taking some stitches out and redoing...maybe I'll finish that one before the deadline...although it is not all that, but it'll be fun!

    I think tops would be ok but not having it quilted may affect the votes.

    I have one that is ready to be quilted but I will have to wait for the next one. Since I hand quilt I will not be able to get it done even before August I fear. Maybe, August but only after I finish the one I am working on.

    Can't wait to see them!

    Rhonda,
    I have posted a picture of the top before the borders, but just yesterday I put on the binding - does this count as "not shown"? Also I'm a little confused by the copyright rules - is giving credit enough? If not, what would I check for, besides the little R sign on the site where I found the pattern? Please PM me with your answers ...

    As a suggestion ... our local fairs classify the quilts according to outside dimensions, so in your case minimum 144" maximum 216" would be the size requirements. Somehow, it makes it more clear, and less room for debate!

    Patrice decided to just let each quilter decide for themselves. As long as it isn't a twin size I am fine with that.

    My understanding is if the site you found the pattern does not limit the use of the pattern all you need to do is give credit to the site and the owner of the pattern. If the site or owner requires the use to be personal only then you are safe to just credit. If they restrict it then you would need to ask permission to use it or find another pattern.

    If you have posted a pic of the top then it doesn not qualify for this contest. It has to be anonymous.

    Hhmmm... if this contest will end the end of July then the next deadline to enter would be Aug 15th. So maybe you will be ready by then?

    The very minimum would be 36 by 36, correct?

    Also, you mentioned art quilts. That's is a bit of a subjective phrase. If we use only traditional piecing but perhaps non-traditional blocks or design, would that be OK?

    You can do a smaller one rather than a large lap size. It is all up to you. You just have to keep your entry a secret til after the results are posted.

    I'm not sure what that would be. Maybe if I saw what you are talking about, But you would have to send it to me in an email not here of course because of keeping it anonymous.

    The size is up to you as long as it isn't a twin or a mini! It must be large enough to use as a lap quilt but not large enough to use as a bedspread.

    Rhonda, I don't have a current quilt for this. However, I can cite a few types or examples of what I mean for your consideration...

    For instance, the quilts that Jinny Beyer makes are all hand pieced and stitched, both the more traditional blocks and those that one might consider more of an art quilt. Her site gallery is here:

    http://www.jinnybeyer.com/quilting-w...lt-gallery.cfm

    I am very fond of her style.

    Also, I love making kaleidoscope style quilts. I have both hand pieced and machine pieced them using no other techniques than I would have with any other traditional block.

    Now, on the other hand, my avatar is something I paper pieced and I know would not qualify even if I wasn't already showing it here. :)

    P.P.S. I've never run a contest but I have headed a few block swaps. Boy, do the unanticipated (good!) questions start start flying in something that just seemed so simple to begin with! Thanks for taking this on. It seems like fun for all. :)

    well Patrice is a great backup so I have confidance if I can't answer she can or together we can come up with an answer.
    Yes I have found this to be true that what seemed simple becomes complex when you get more than 2 people involved! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    But I hope this is good clean fun for everyone with no dissension in the ranks! LOL So listen up everyone we want just good positive feedback and if you need to vent do it privately!! LOL LOL I'm sure there will be those who don't agree with something but I hope they are adult enough to keep the negative out of the contest.

    I know this is going to go well and we will be able to make it an on going feature of the board!!

    Traditional piecing to me means squares triangles and rectangles or circles. Kaleidoscope does not fit in this genre. I know OBWs are pieced traditionally but I would have to say that is not a traditional method. It is a newer method and not one that has been handed down over the years as traditional piecing has been. Other kaleidoscopes either fall in the same category as the OBW or they are appliques so I would have to rule out the Ks.

    I will look at her site and be back.

    I would say it is fine. As long as you are using traditional piecing methods as in joining square rectangles etc then it fits this criteria. An Art quilt to me would be a layered applique or reverse applique or a self portrait or landscape using unconventional methods etc.

    Thanks for asking. It makes me think! and may answer a question for someone else who may not have wanted to ask.

    Thanks for the clarification on kaleido scope quilts, Rhonda. Based on what you've also written here I'll eliminate consideration of any kind of tessellating design also (Jinny Beyer does do some of these too).

    I was thinking tesselations would be ok but if you apply the handing down from one generation to another as part of the description of traditional then the tesselation wouldn't be allowed. Let alone that all the tesselations are free form or not squares etc. Now I have seen one that uses crosses that would be allowed. But not the fish or birds etc.

    Thanks for the dimensions.

    well we ended up deciding to let you all decide on the dimensions. So as long as it fits over a lap and is not big enough for a twin bed then I guess it fits a lap quilt description.

    I apologize for all the confusion. I am learning and next contest all will be spelled out in the original post. This one we will just have to shake the bugs out of it and use it as a trial run!!
