    I saw this really cute infant blanket with (6) block sizes of 8" X 8" and some borders. I could not find the name of the pattern. However, I did figured out the pattern and made it with different measurements. At what point
    am I infringing on the copyrights of the designer.

    Help!

    That's a discussion that comes up frequently. . . I don't have a clear answer but I'm sure someone on here will. ...

    I do that all the time..if you copy it as is.. then post it.. to sell it.. as your own.. that's infringement..squares belong to everyone..like the "Log Cabin" it's public domain..if u were to see a design using the Log Cabin and copied their design and not give them credit..that's infringement..hope this helps a little !!

    Any one that uses EQ software reconstructs quilt blocks of all kinds. No instructions how to piece the blocks so no copyright issue.

    difficult to answer without seeing or having described the design. It's guessing in the dark.
    Where did you see the design etc.
    Not enough information for an informed answer

    you are infringing on copy rights when you use someone else patterns then display or sell the quilt without asking for permission.
    there is *built in* permission to make a quilt for your own use- or to give as a gift- if you want to sell it you need to ask-
    if you want to enter it in a show you need to give credit where credit is due- and it is best to again-ask for permission-
    some times you will come across a pattern that will say you can make up to ...5 quilts with this pattern to sell-
    or some other- added permission- but on the norm- you should just contact and ask- it's not hard- and unless you are mass=producing the quilts most of the time the designer does not mind- as long as you remember to include the designer on the label.

    I don't think you are infringing if you make up the pattern yourself from just seeing her pattern. If you copied someone else's worded pattern then you would be infringing.
