A few weeks ago, a lady posted a picture of a beautiful pink poinsettia she had on her table. I loved it and began playing around with EQ to come up with a quilt I could make that reminded me of a pink poinsettia. I shared a picture of the drawing with the group and most didn’t think it looked like a poinsettia but I still liked it so I began making the blocks.
As I was in the middle of making my blocks, I was reading Kim’s blog and came across this quilt she had made based on Bonnie Hunter’s Weed Whacker pattern. I had seen Bonnie’s pattern quite a few times and the similarities never crossed my mind. But when I saw Kim’s quilt, I thought mine looked way too much like hers and then when I read that she had based her design on Bonnie’s pattern, I felt really bad. The last thing I want to do is ever copy someone else’s design. I wrote Bonnie and Kim and while both saw similarities to their designs, I believe neither feel it was a copied design.
My quilt has sashing with pieced sashing squares, and a pieced border different from what Kim and Bonnie used on their quilts. Here’s what mine is going to look like.
