    IMHO if I simply re-drafted/copied another quilter's work, I don't think I'd have the nerve to give people a hard time as they help others through the process, but that's just me.
    just what are you trying to say here

    No problem :) I knew I wanted to use the freezer paper from the grocery as it's waayyy cheaper than the stuff that's packaged for quilter's and this works nicely.

    I'm just saying that they both benefit from each other and I don't see what all the fuss is over. In order to do DJ, you have to buy the supplies from one of Brenda's methods. Thatquilt brings people in that Brenda hasn't...whether they're using the name of the quilt or not. thatquilt is no different than quilt shops teaching pattern completion as long as each student purchases their own materials.
    I also think that if I were publishing patterns they'd be original, not copies of another quilter's work.

    so what are you saying, brenda shouldn't have made her take down the original blog?

    She just changed the name, as I far as I knew. Lots of blogs change location. In any case, the blog isn't much different from what we're doing here, really.

    i'm sorry but is your comments directed at me?? and something i've said?

    i'm still not understanding what you're trying to say here.

    who exactly are you upset with and saying shouldn't "have the nerve"

    Oh no, not at all, Klue. I'm just saying that there was a lot of fuss all over the internet when that quilt blog had to change names and if I were Brenda and the original work of art was not mine to begin with, I'm not sure that I'd have had the nerve to go out there making people change a site simply meant to help others in the process.

    I'm pretty sure what she's saying isn't directed at you, Kelly.

    From what I understand she thinks Brenda has some nerve to claim any kind of "rights" to the designs in the Jane Stickle quilt, because they are not her (Brenda's) original works, but rather an interpretation of Jane Stickle's.

    That's my understanding, anyway.

    i believe "that quilt" blog used to have a much different name until brenda shut her down.
    I was agreeing with you, Klue...sorry for the confusion.

    i didn't think you were but i was getting so confused and not sure if i upset you.

    i didn't think i said anything bad about that quilt so i was just very mixed up and wanted to clarify it.

    well then this is going to burst your brain.

    these are the jane blocks (and others) done in diamonds instead of squares (like squares are so easy).

    yes, and brenda doesn't own the patterns just the trademark on the name.

    thats why "that quilt" and this forum can post pics of the patterns.

    you're just not allowed to make an income of the Dear Jane name that belongs to brenda.

    I travel with my featherweight! She is a little workhorse and doesn't mind the bumps in the road. I combine with hand piecing where needed and also do counted cross stitch, needlepoint and reading. I get bored easily or have ADHD, not sure which!!!!! :lol: :lol:

    wow, you are one talented lady.

    i've always wondered how people manage on the road with a machine.

    last year DH and i did a road trip to memphis and all the cats came with us.

    i just loved being on the road like that and have mentioned a few times that i'd like to get an RV.

    i always get depressed when i can't sew. i've been sewing 6 days a week every week for the last 8 years.

    Wouldn't that be awesome!

    We have a family holiday home (bach) on the coast and go out quite regularly for a break. It has no power, no internet, no phones, it's great! I take my hand sewing, and a few magazines, and just relax. I could quite easily take my treadle machine out there, but with no iron there's not much point.

    How many cats do you have?

    We have an RV... we call them campers, and we plan on taking our one cat with us when we go away. Quite a few people do take cats, surprisingly. Hubby is still finishing the inside so we haven't used it yet.

    i think you'd run into a battery charge problem. a good iron needs major juice that a charge might only last an hour or so.

    how about those seam roller things, i use it all the time when i paper piece, i don't press between each fabric strip like some people do.

    i have 4 cats but we took 2 on the road trip because they were both on antibiotics and really fought about taking them.

    there's no way the pet sitter would be able to do it without being ripped to shreds.

    Seam roller?

    Actually, I wonder if an old fashioned "heat on the coal range" type contraption would work. My in-laws probably have one, their place is like a museum!

    And hubby has just informed me that his mum does indeed have an old cast iron iron that sits on the coal range to heat up! LOL
