I'm going to add to the discussion I've been reading about on other blogs and on the Stashbuster list.
I bought two books last week in Virginia - Big 'n Easy by Judy Hopkins and Bundles of Fun by Karen Snyder and both books had a version of a half log cabin quilt. I also made a quilt using a half log cabin block last year. I posted a picture on my blog after some discussion on the Stashbuster list about a pattern called Bento Box which uses a half log cabin block AND Jeanne posted a picture of a Mystery quilt she did which was basically the same quilt.
So who gets credit for *designing* this quilt? Is everyone else (including me) guilty of *stealing* the design?
I am inspired by quilts in books, at shows, in magazines, and on the internet but 9 times out of 10 when it comes time for me to make a quilt I sit down at my computer, open EQ5 and design my quilt.
