I'm truly hurt that no one thought I could do that quilt block below on my first try. I couldn't, but that does not ease the pain. I think words you thought like "piracy", "plagiarism" & "stealing" are rather harsh. I prefer the words "sharing", "communal", & "cooperative"--they're not appropriate here, but I still prefer them. The block was from our friend Wendy Grande and is featured in Elly Sienkiewicz's book Romancing Ribbons Into Flowers. Wendy and Warren joined us on our Fall Cruise last year and Wendy showed Alex some of her techniques.
