I've never seen a ribbon (or prize money) awarded specifically for the fabric used in the quilt. I'm just saying that it is a nice courteous gesture to let your quilter know if her work helped you win a ribbon, especially if the ribbon was for quilting, whether it was by hand or machine.
If I were to get a judge's comment back with compliments about the fabric, especially hand-dyes, I would also let the dyer know about it.
I like to give credit where credit is due.

For instance, the current (Fall 2011) issue of ON TRACK magazine (for machine quilters) has beautiful photos on the cover of a TQS BOM made and quilted by Marlene Hiltner. The article does state that it is a Sue Garman design, but I would like to have seen TQS mentioned also.

If you had used hand dyed fabrics which you had purchased, would you consider giving some of the prize money to the dyer. NO!! I see for hire quilting in the same light. Credit should be given but the ribbon and the prize money goes to the quilt and it's owner. Betty Ann Seeman

I would always ask the longarmer if it's ok with her/him if I enter the quilt into competitions.

As for any prize money: If you have paid for the quilting, then that should be enough of a reward for the quilter. If it's a collaboration where no money has been involved, I would expect any prize money to be shared. But that's just my personal opinion.

You are welcome, Sue. At the very least, please let her know if a quilt she has worked on wins a ribbon!!

I don't think there are any real rules for splitting the money. Your long-armer should definitely be given credit for her work, and if the quilt gets an award for excellence in machine quilting, you might consider giving her the ribbon.

If you paid her for her quilting, your obligation to her is finished, but if you win some money and share it with her, you will probably get really good service the next time you ask her to quilt something for you!

Also...some shows do not allow "quilted for hire" in competition. They only accept a collaboration of the entire quilt.

I'm just sayin.......

I am having a quilt longarm quilted by another person, if I enter this quilt into a show I understand I would give credit to both myself and the longarmer but (and this is a long-shot!) what if I win $$$money would that be split between the two of us? just curious....
