- Is any quilt block design ever truly original? I mean, we're talking about a craft that has been around for generations! Everything we do is based on something done before us, right? Although this idea is purely my own, do I have to do some sort of due diligence to make sure it's not really similar to something else out there?
- Do I need to copyright my original designs? I'm not planning on selling this, but I'd like to make a "free" pattern download for the quilt. This is something I'll need to do more research on.
- What type of design/publishing software is out there - what do others use (see the survey below)?
- What other issues haven't I thought about? Am I stressing too much and should I just jump in (of course I am stressing too much, have you met me?)
I can't show you yet what my design is (obviously!) but I'd love to show you the fabrics I chose. I have just been obsessed with Honey Honey since it came out and this project seemed like a great use of that line. Here's the eye candy...

And here's where you can help me! Will you take a quick one-question survey below? It will help me get some direction on which way to go next!
My other big sewing news this week is that I'm going to QUILT CON on Saturday - and I am SO excited. I'm going to meet up with a group hosted by Alyssa at Pile O' Fabric on Friday for dinner and we are swapping pincushions. I just finished up my first cathedral window pincushion for that swap. I used some leftover charm squares in Vintage Modern from last year and I found a cute button to tie it all together. So fun!
And last, but not least, I have put my granny squares back on my design wall! I need to make a few more of those and put them all together to be donated to my quilt guild's Baby Bundles program next month. They've been sitting in a pile for about 6 months now and I've got some more red/aqua scraps I can cut up and get this little guy finished!! I figured if I put them up there, I can't forget about them when they are staring at me every day :)
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday today - if you are visiting from there - thanks for stopping by and giving me your feedback! Go see what others are doing this week for your daily dose of inspiration.
