Because I like to take a lot of classes, I have gotten in the habit of naming my workshop piece's after the teacher. Not only does it help me remember who's class it was made in, but also let's the viewer know someone else had a hand in it. Pictured above is Esterita's Still Life made in a class with Esterita Austin. I have also made "Jane's Garden", "Sharon Planted a Seed", "Ruth's Shell", and "Karen's Medallion". All quilts made in class from wonderful teachers.
Whether it is a teacher and/or a designer that has inspired you, acknowledging that person's assistance and influence in completing your quilt is only fair. That person's ideas shaped your decisions when you were making the quilt. Recognize their inspiration/influence! That acknowledgement should be on the quilt label, on every entry form, and in your a scrap book or journal of your quilts. Writing it down on the label will keep the information handy for writing it down on in your journal and on all entry forms. Digitized patterns for both embroidery and quilting are also designed by a person, so please don't forget to mention them as well!
