    IF it is the Star Spin pattern I am thinking of all it is made of is log cabin blocks cut in 1/2 corner to corner for the big 'spin' and log cabin blocks cut in 1/4 for the smaller part of the spin. The tute on here is a little different than the pattern...

    Copying patterns to send to others is a violation of copyright law...iow, it's illegal.
    You can easily buy your own pattern at either of these two retailers.

    The easiest way to make a spinning star is to piece strip sets. The width and number of strips in the sets determines the look of the final star. This is how I make mine.

    Am I missing something? I didn't see where anyone said they were going to copy it.

    Seems the "Quilt Police" has extended their territory, it's pretty dangerous to assume. If we didn't share patterns, whats the point? Sure you can't COPY a pattern on a copier, but to share is different. The "QPs" need to give up their badges. LOL

    In defense of ghost rider: she/he is not being the Quilt Police - just reminding everyone of US copyright law. When people talk about "shar" and"give" with quotes the meaning is pretty clear. ghost rider and others kindly directed the person to free tuts or sites to purchase the pattern.

    I'll remember not to use quotes around words next time........meaning ......it's pretty sad when we have to find ourselves being selective in the words or punctuation that we use......meaning...

    Quotes or not, sharing is sharing and that takes money from the persons that design and sell the patterns. Would you like to spend hours coming up with a very unique pattern only to have people share it and deprive you of sales that you would have had. It is the same as stealing, no matter how you cut it. Any time you use a pattern, return it or not you are taking sales from that designer. Believe me it costs a lot to get a pattern to the point of selling it. Also, I'm not the Quilt Police, just someone this has happened to more than once and I've pretty much quite making my patterns availabe to the public, I just design, make and enjoy my own. Been there done that, bought the T-shirt.

    Well,I guess I will throw in my 2 cents worth.Sometimes my BQF and I can`t afford to buy 2 patterns that we see ,so I will buy 1 and she will buy 1 then we share at our Quilt-N-Chat or guild meeting.We don`t copy,we just work together.I would think that the designer and shop would rather we bought 2 patterns together than NONE at all.

    It is not that hard to see a quilt and figure out how to make one similiar. Maybe I'll write a book someday on how to do that....want to buy one? Seriously.........I really think everyone should just lighten up about it, personally. If you look hard enough any new pattern out there is based on something that has already been created, pretty much.

    copyright law is serious business for serious and legitimate reasons.

    we do not permit members to exploit this community to ask for or to offer bootleg copies of any copyrighted material.

    as i have been unable to track down any version of the pattern for the Star Spin quilt pattern in the public domain, we must consider it fully protected.

    Ghostrider drew a completely reasonable and predictable conclusion. She was correct to post what she did.

    Not all laws facilitate personal convenience. Those are the breaks.
