    I'll set up the website you can sell them from (copyrighted of course) and you'll be famous in no time!! What do ya say??? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :lol:
    Well ... first I'd say "Jack Got Twisted in the Box" of "Chinese Puzzles on Black" because "Symmetry Moves in Mysterious Ways" and "Foolish Variations"

    Then I'd say, "Let's Get The Website Started Old School, Yo"

    There's a post up higher that gives the name of a couple books you can check in that will list most of the public domain blocks and such. Basically, a 4 patch, a 9 patch, and most of the really common blocks are public domain. If you can't afford the books they have them at most libraries.

    I was using a faux 30's quilt block picture as my avatar. The pic I saved from their website. I was recently asked to remove it for these same reasons. And I hadn't even sewn a block yet, just used their picture.

    Also I've been on some websites that when I right click my mouse to save the picture I got a pop-up saying function not available. So it's not just making a quilt for selling, you can't use their picture either.

    Hey, Debbie. If you want to use quit block clipart for your avatar, go to this web site:

    http://dlstewart.com/clipart.htm

    she makes the pics available for free use on web sites and asks only that you include a link to her site. i believe that if you included her site (with URL) as the source in your signature, it would fulfill her request.

    After reading all this I think it is quite impossible to actully sell anything that we make. unless you are a true artist. What about all the quilts we see posted on E-bay for sale? They only go for pennies
    maybe the longarmers are the only ones that can make a living at quilting. Is stippling copywritted?

    Well, I am going to stick to the old patterns there are enough of those around tha I should be okay. And if Patrice is still alive and kicking after that, I'll get her to start designing for me and she'll become rich and famous selling her original designs. Once that happens, we can all say, "I knew her when....." We will all be able to say how nice and generous she is and just how talented she is, and her business will be well on its way :!: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
