    Very interesting articles....who'd have thought quilting could be so dangerous and exciting...Lisa T, who designed those cherries on your avatar??? Oh, dear I'm using Van Gogh's Starry Starry Night....I was hoping to quilt it one day....Ah well it will have to stay in the closet and be worked upon in secrecy....

    OMG!! I want to quilt Starry Night, too! I even have a small poster of it in my sewing stuff. Too funny. Do you think they'll let us stay at the same prison?

    As far as my cherries- I think I am safe because it's an antique design from the 30's, so that would put it in the public realm I believe. I got it out of a Good Housekeeping book, so maybe they re-copywrote it? My quilt looks far different from the one in the book and the cherries are the only thing that I used from the pattern. Maybe this is a derivitive "work"... is a derivitive work illegal?

    I hope they let me quilt in prison! (Can you imagine- how much sewing time would I have there!??? But probably no scissors...)

    I've wondered about the original designs using traditional blocks that I have posted here. I love sharing them and the feedback that I get for changes and improvements. There is no way to prevent someone from copying from a picture. I know that using EQ6 I can re-create a quilt exactly from a picture.

    This whole issue is very confusing to me. I guess that as long as I'm not selling anything...they won't lock me up???

    I hate all the confusion about copywriting. In the painting and stained glass world, I BELIEVE (note: I believe) the interpretation is that if I don't copy the pattern, then try to sell the pattern as my own design, then I'm not in the wrong. The exception in some of the books are that if I were to take the pattern and manufacture a lot (like the quilts made overseas) and sold them cheaply, I could be in trouble.
    I think it would be VERY hard to claim a quilt block design is my own design...so many are old time versions of blocks. The appliqueing or picture quilts would be a different story. In the meantime, I'm not designing quilts (I'm not that talented) and I'm using patterns from books or kits. :mrgreen:
