Exhibitions and Challenges
Q. Do you need to be registered to submit an entry into the Exhibition and Challenges?
Q. Can I put my work I am entering in the "Challenge" Exhibitions on face book? Will it still be accepted?
A. In this context Facebook is a discussion forum for feedback, which requires invitations to view as a friend. This is fine so long as it is not related to teaching or demonstrations. On the other hand if you are to put your work on a website, blog or other public forum, for example, this is considered to have been published. Therefore it will not be accepted by the judging panel.
The key thing to take into consideration is, if it has been viewed by the general public, whether by electronic means, print, or other public display, it is considered to have been 'shown'.
Q. I have purchased a stock photo. I have exclusive rights to use the photo in anyway, can I use this photo for Exhibitions?
A. Sorry, our judging panel has made it quite clear that purchased stock photo's or artwork does not fit under "original work" therefore will not be accepted.
Q. The first month asks for traditional blocks - how can I best ensure the blocks I choose are in that category?
A.Traditional quilt blocks are a single block that somewhere along the way was designed and given a name. Most of these we have no knowledge of the designers name. Many are very old and well established as traditional blocks and classic quilting designs. Traditional blocks are usually straight lined cut pieces joined together. Examples are, Attic Window, Nine Patch, Basket Quilt & Card Trick. There are many more. If you Google the internet “traditional patch work blocks” you will get a list of examples. Due to their straight line cuts and ease to put together traditional blocks are usually taught to beginners.There are many names for Traditional blocks due to different designers across the globe. Duplications became known once notes were compared.
Q. Do the blocks need to stay in the same row or can we mix them up?
A.Keep the blocks in the same row, the order they are in within the row is up to you.
