    Cathe, That is just beautiful!! I have a question for you as you seem to be wise in these matters. How can you tell if a pattern is copyrighted if it doesn't say copyrighted on the pattern? Usually sites have protection to make it so that you can't copy if your not supposed to don't they? I would like to know how to tell the difference.

    Beautiful quilt!

    How about this template? http://tinyurl.com/3lpfvy "Not So Giant Dahlia Template Set"

    Any idea how easy this might be to use and figure out? I'm not a very experienced quilter but can usually follow directions. This size seems more appealing to me. I love dahlias!

    I hate to be a wet blanket, but that site looks like a direct copy of the (copyrighted) book. It's illegal to do that, even though she isn't making any money from it. Copyright laws are important to all of us who do creative work!
    I wonder if anyone has contacted the original pattern holder Cathe? You are absolutely right, copyright laws are very important. I'd not even want to utilize that site now. Thanks for pointing it out.

    All it takes is someone with a scanner/printer to put it out there. Just like lots of other stuff, just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be.

    Cathe, your quilt is gorgeous! You do such beautiful work.

    I agree. However, I'm not sure how you would be able to tell about the copyright when someone does that. How do we go about checking to see if it is copyrighted?

    Cathe you've done a fantastic job on your dahlia! The colors you choose look as though they are all layered on top of each other just like the flower pedals of the dahlia do! Wonderful!!!! I have always liked that pattern and will have to give it a try one of these days. Thanks for sharing!

    Cathe,
    That couldn't be more beautiful. I love the fabrics and adore that pattern. I have grown dahlias before and like them quite a bit....of course out here we have to dig them up for winter and haven 't felt the need to do extensive gardening at this house-----yet. :D I know that it will be truly amazing when you're finished. You're incredibly talented.

    Thanks for the bump and the kind words!

    The only reason I knew that was a copyright infringement is because I own that book and recognized it. Otherwise, I would never have known.

    I am in awe of the giant dahlia quilt but think it would be more than I would want to chew. I cringe at set in seams!

    Yours is gorgeous!!
