Did They Copyright My Relative's Quilt?

In February, I posted a picture of a quilt in a museum that was made by my aunt. The posting of the picture was done with the permission of the library that has possession of the quilt in their collection.

I asked Judy G. Russell to comment on copyright issues regarding pictures of art and other similar items. Judy posted a discussion of the concept on her The Legal Genealogist blog today in an entry called "Copyright and the quilt."
