Someone might teach your technique or idea. More people will learn it and enjoy it than you could ever reach alone.
Down On The Farm Quilt Pattern
Is that such a terrible thing? A world where we share ideas, techniques, fabric, and tools as freely as our grandmothers around a quilt frame. Kate Spain even shared the following comment which clarifies some points, including a mistake I made about about her fabric:. Thanks for your thoughtful post and great questions about copyright and the extent to which it is influencing the quilting community. Or shower curtain? If you answered Yes, No, No, No, then you really have nothing to worry about! Whatever you are doing with my fabric is fine!
If you spend your hard-earned dollars on it you should be able to use it however you like! I completely agree with you that an absence of attribution is a missed opportunity for both promotion as well as resource material. One last and important thing to know is that I did not make ONE dollar on this, and donated the recalled tote bags to several local charities. Sincerest apologies for my mistake about your fabric, but my core issue with this entire situation remains. Already things are getting confused! If I plan to sell what I make — what does that mean? Can I make something to sell: a quilt, a handbag, a tote, a belt, a skirt, pants, machine cover, etc, etc, etc or not?
Back then I would slice up the leg of jeans and insert funky fabrics into the leg to create homemade bell bottoms. These caught on so well, I began making them for other girls in class. We want the freedom to make whatever we want for whatever reason. What if I made a quilt for myself and photographed it.
That photograph ended up in my online quilt gallery and one day, years down the road, I decided to make a picture book of all my quilts, which was then sold all over the world and through mass market channels. We never know what the end use of a quilt will be. We never know how long it will last or who it will be given to, or who will photograph it, or what those photographs will be used for. All the questions this raises will just keep getting bigger and bigger, more complex and more technical, and our feelings of frustration, anxiety, and fear will build until all desire to create is obliterated.
Tags: leah day printed fabric copyright quilting quilting copyright. May 16, April 2, March 16, I am late to the discussion but have spent a good while reading all the posts in response as well as a couple of blogs one really slamming you good to the point of accusing you of tax fraud! So you really hit a nerve and I would say on both sides of the issue. I completely agree with you. I think the copyright thing has gotten so far out of control it is ridiculous. As well as so many people claiming "original designer" on things that are definitely NOT original. I read one blog that was selling cupcake potholder patterns and wrote the entire blog post complaining about someone else selling "her design".
A cupcake potholder? I use caps for emphasis too. It is to try and make sure I am not misconstrued. I can understand a little of Kate Spain's position. However, I also think that there are times you need to consider the repercussion of how you handle things. Once she knew she had to bring the book into it, she should have reconsidered how she handled it. By bringing them in, her point was lost and she alienated many that will not buy her product again.
Fabric designers need pattern designers to get their fabric's sold. Just as music bands need radio stations playing their music. Without that medium, their art is not brought to the masses. When we quilters especially us newbies see another quilt designed using a fabric, this does inspire us to purchase that fabric and make our own. If not in that design in another simply because we like how it all came together.
Many newbies cannot put it all together and see how the different fabrics in a line come together till we see it done by another. Her actions will make other pattern designers reconsider using her fabric simply because they don't want the problems that may arise from it. I know I wouldn't want to use it. I would prefer using another one that didn't carry so much risk.
She has obviously seen the backlash from her suit, hence the olive branch to the quilt pattern designer, though I imagine it will do little good. I understand the need to make a living. However, with any business you need to weigh the risk of legal action to the loss you will take doing so. She made a huge mistake and listened to the wrong people I think. Just because you CAN sue a person, doesn't always mean you should. I think it is the free sharing of ideas on blogs and the web that has drawn thousands of new quilters into the quilt world and inspired thousands of others to do more.
All of these people buy more fabric, more patterns, more books — you get the picture. Spain's actions not only alienate me from her designs why take the risk with her but Moda as long as she continues to design for them. They embody the great results one reaps when they "pay it forward.
Personally, I'm not sure where Kate got off suing at all — Moda is the one that gave a ton of fabric away free for the book and didn't bother with an agreement with Kate OR the author OR the publishing company. Personally, I have pretty much switched to solids, hand dyed fabrics and some batiks for my work. And honestly, I won't purchase any Kate fabrics. I don't cave to bullies — and her going after the author was so very wrong. Leah, I enjoyed your thought-provoking post and have given it much thought.
I'd like to quote from it today as well as link to it several times in my post. Please let me know if you have any concerns with that, but I'm guessing you won't given your statements here! Rachel — Obviously you're welcome to quote from this article! Have fun and shoot us a link when your post is live. I am really late to this discussion too, but as a novice quilter with no other quilters in my family I constantly find myself learning by looking at other people's work. I am a software engineer and we constantly look at other developers code to draw inspiration for a better way to design our own software.

I don't know if I made a good analogy here but this brings to mind the classic case of Andy Warhol and his work, especially the Campbell Soup cans. After all some other designer did design the art on the can. This situation seems similar. Leah, There's a lot of good common sense in your comments on copyrighted design!
This reminds me of similar problem that I was made aware of because I am also an avid gardener. A few years ago I realized the big box stores were only selling brand name plants. I thought it was odd that suddenly my marigold plants were twice as much even though they looked the same, but sported a snazzy label! I am not selling or claiming this newly rooted stem is MY designer plant. I did some research and the growers were adamantly claiming their rights over my broken stem. I doubt this has passed the smell test in an actual court, but just the same, I now buy most of my plants at a local farm.
Hi Leah, I was just looking through your blog archive for the Heart and Feather posts, and I stumbled onto this one again. It's still quite relevant, and frankly, if you brought up the issue on an annual basis, you'd be doing a great service for the quilt community. Hi Leah.
I liked your post. For you and others who are interested in making patterns and other content available to the public for free, check out the Creative Commons licenses, which fall under federal copyright law but are much less restrictive. Also, should it come to this, you can "protect" quilting designs such as the spiral, which I don't think could ever pass muster in court as copyright-protected by "publishing" them i.
Info about that is on the Creative Commons website, as well. I will add that I am constantly annoyed by quilters and knitters who publish patterns and include the statement that products made from the patterns cannot be sold. Copyright law, unless it has changed in the past year, clearly states that only the pattern is protected, not what is made from the pattern. I would ask that you reconsider the use of Nazi. Nazis are and were bad to an entirely different level that this. Maybe you'd like to use quilt copyright police or something.
I just don't think anybody in the quilt world has reached a point of evil to justify Nazi. Please just think about it. I do think it is wrong to copy a quilt and pass it off as your own. There should also be room for "great minds". I saw the spitting image of a quilt I'd made but in a different color at a national show once. I didn't copy hers and she didn't copy mine because I'd never shown my quilt and I'd never seen her quilt.
