The Quilting Army

What is the Quilting Army?  People willing to play!  This project is about community.  So what does this volunteer army do?  Go to quilt shows, strategize on the project, try samples of research supplies, start conversations on the Facebook group, keep a lookout of interesting issues arising in the quilting world, particularly related to intellectual property, and go on field trips to experience quilty thin.

Tulane University Law School:  Our project is based at TLS, where Dr. Townsend Gard is a Professor of Law, teaching Intellectual property (copyright, trademark, patents, trade secrets and right of publicity), art law, social media, and advertising law, and law and entrepreneurship).  The law students are a huge part of this project, both participating in class activities focused on Just Wanna Quilt, and also working as research assistants.
