  1. I would love to enter. I have designed quilts before but just to myself so I am not really sure what you need. Do you want my hand drawn design with all measurements or do you need me to computerize my design? Many thanks, Liz.

  2. There is the ability to add more than one file, if you have the design in slightly different colors can you submit both or is it expect just one image. With the image are details required, i.e.. Name, Measurements etc. ?

  3. “The MQG and QuiltCon reserve the right to use the winning quilt design and iterations thereof….” Does this mean, however, the designer of the winning quilt design shall keep copyright and ownership of the design for his or her future use?

    • Hi Lillie,

      Please refer to the last point:
      The MQG reserves the right to use someone other than the designer for pattern development. The MQG will own the rights to the winning design but will always credit the designer.

      Thanks!

  4. I am better at drawing patterns than executing haha. I just might have to submit and see what happens :)
