While I am busy creating the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Case Collection (see previous post), I thought you would enjoy seeing one of the quilts I had selected to include but ultimately had to leave out due to potential copyright issues. I very much support the protection of intellectual property rights and would rather err on the side of caution than risk copyright infringement. I'm sure it could have been a best seller!
The quilt is wonderful and the mix of colors, sports pennants, a few social-issues, and a floral centerpiece, is very quirky! Several pennants note a date of 1912 and there are many references to San Bernadino and California. The quilt is part of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum's Permanent Collection.
Happy News today! Quilt My Phone just received the go-ahead to create and market a line of cases for phones, tablets and laptops featuring vintage quilts from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Permanent Collection! It is great news for the museum as well, since they will receive a royalty for each case sold. Now, you can shop and do good at the same time!And these cases are gorgeous! Well of course they are; they're based on gorgeous vintage quilts! I'm dying to show them to you but I need to take time to make sure that everything is in order and that I have an accurate history to share for each quilt.In the meantime, please join our mailing list to be among the first to see and buy a case from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Case Collection! And of course, tell your quilting friends!
We just found out that we'll be exhibiting our lovely quilt-inspired cases for your phone, tablet, laptop and all your electronic devices at the Denver National Quilt Festival, May 3 - 6, 2012. The festival will be held at the Denver Merchandise Mart. This will be the 7th year of the show and it looks to be a great event. See a listing of more Quilting Events on the Quilt My Phone site!
