    ....include the name of the pattern used.....and if possible and/or practical to include WHERE the pattern came from. As an example the pattern is call "The Witch in the corner" and came from Fons and Porter, Love of Quilting Magazine, October 2004. I look at so many of the pictures of beautiful quilts done here and wonder...what is the pattern!!!! Or say to myself, I sure would like to do the pattern if I knew what it was or where to get it......Please share your information and knowledge.

    I agree. I have posted one quilt in which I forgot the pattern name and put that in the info. You're right, there are so many lovely quilts that I would love to know the pattern name and where I can purchase it.

    I do sometimes ask what the pattern is and where to get it, but honestly, when I'm posting a picture of something I made, I'm more interested in sharing my accomplishment than the name of the pattern and where I got it from. Shameful, I know. :oops:

    I have always thought that because there are some really pretty quilts out there and the patterns are so beautiful I want to try it myself.

    And wouldn't it be nice if all of us could read what has already been posted? Often I see that the OP has given the information in a post later in the thread and the question of what, where, how continues to be asked for another ten pages. Grrr ;)

    I totally agree that name of quilt, book, pattern, magazine where you got it would be helpful. Another helpful idea would be to include the block and quilt size.

    I also agree with Rose L, if you are interested in the quilt pattern, technique, etc., read the entire posting before asking a question that has possibly been asked and answered.

    Good post.

    For the past month I have been posting pics of the quilts I have designed, but I am afraid to include in the post that you can find the pattern on my website or by calling or e-mailing me. I was told by one of the moderators that I can't advertise my business on the board. What to do?

    It is pretty simple to PM someone or put google the name of the quilt pattern and all the info is usually at your fingertips.

    It certainly would save the poster from having to answer all those PMs they get about that very question.

    I would also really like to know sizes, as in inches or feet. It is hrd to tell from pictures.

    I like it when someone shares the name of the pattern, size, etc. And, I think, if you're making a quilt from a pattern with a copyright, that you should give credit to the designer.

    And, I'm always impressed with all those people who say they just take off and design as they go! I'm way too much of a "bean counter" to do that! lol

    I dont use patterns....I am one of those who is a beginner but will use patterns as I make more quilts. I have done 5 at present and will attempt a pattern very soon. There are so many beautiful patterns out there.

    It seems like a lot of information to include when not everyone wants to know where to get the pattern. If it is your own design, it would be enough to put that information on the post and then anyone who wants the pattern can PM you. Giving credit to the designer is all the information I would need.

    I like all the info too but am guilty as by the time I finish quilting and binding, the pattern has been long tucked away. :oops: I have tops that I completed in 2006 waiting for quilting. 8-)

    I so hear you there. For that reason I wish we could edit our posts days later to include the info. I'm on-dial-up (which is better than writing on stone tablets) but it takes forever to wade through 6 to 10 pages.
