    Well, this brings up something that has occurred to me and maybe has been answered before. If I copy a block, such as "Swoon" in EQ7 and make a quilt with it, am I infringing on someone's copyright?

    I was at a quilt shop awhile back and they were selling the free patterns that companies had sent to them. There was a $2.00 sticker on it and it stated on the pattern that it was free! I did point that out to the owner. No telling how many free patterns they had sold.

    Catmcclure, I agree that when you sell a pattern out of a magazine, it is not a copyright infringement. If it was a copy of the pattern, that's entirely different.

    catmcclure, I agree ... that's what I'd thought but wasn't sure ... if it's the ACTUAL page /pattern taken from a mag or book, there's no problem ... but when COPIES are being sold, it's an infringement. Unfortunately, some people are doing this, and those who don't know better are buying !
