a lot of quilters don’t know it, but if they make a quilt from a copywrited pattern and then publish photo images of that quilt on the internet, the photos themselves are in violation of copywrite law, even if the copywrite holder’s info is published along with the photos.

in other words, you can make a quilt for yourself or to give away, but you cannot publish pictures of that quilt.

that’s why, in spite of continual requests for photos, my blog, “The Egghead’s Coop” no longer features photos of what i’m working on, nor will it for as long as the law stays the same.

I’ll still make my quilts from copywrited patterns and give credit and include links where i can, but i won’t knowingly break copywrite law just to show curious quilters what they look like.
