March 19th Day meeting Lecture by Diana Bradley

Anchorage quilter, teacher & manager for Seams Like Home Quilt Shoppe, Diana Bradley did a very interesting lecture this week for the ALCQ day group. She first talked about the quilt judging process at the Alaska State Fair. She told us it was modeled after the AQS judging system. We learned a lot from her.
Next she talked about Copyright Laws in regards to how they impact quilters. It was a very eye opening talk & got discussion flowing. She talked about the hypothetical quilter"Amazing Alice".
It was both entertaining & informative. What it all boiled down to though, was if you buy a pattern, they are intended for personal use. If you want to sell, display or do anything else with what you have made, you really have to shoot an email off to Amazing Alice & ask her permission.
Show & tells were as follows:
Elaine Fergen mention free patterns can be found at Marcia Hohn's webpage.
Jetta Brewer-Huber showed a quilt top finished for a grandson. She said it's off to be quilted than given as a gift. We don't get to see it finished.

Mary Huey did this Buggy Barn pattern for a grand-baby.

Ruthe Rassmussen made a baby quilt using Aunt Martha Embroideries done by her daughter, &
some inspiration from our own Judy Hopkins book.
Linda Postlewait made a Clothesline Basket, using this years ALCQ Guild Challenge fabric. She said directions for this can be found in the 2007 Mar/Apr issue of Fons & Porter's magazine, & probably on their website.
Delberta Trevithick showed a little St Patrick's Day Basket quilt.
Deb Hardman showed her latest quilted book covers, using things from her ABC's of Embellishment classes.
