I bought a slew of long arm rulers at the Mid Atlantic quilt festival last weekend, and I was soooo looking forward to using them today. The ruler hopper foot came but when I put it on today it's the wrong foot!  The foot hits the screw on the needle bar.   Waaaa Haaaa Haaaa

I've got one of Thea's Christmas quilts loaded and it's beautiful!  The borders are pieced beautifully and there are appliqued houses in each block. It's calling out for ruler work.  Oh well, life happens...  I'll have to wait another week for the right foot to arrive.  Until then, I've got plenty of piecing to do.

I fixed the problem I had with the hopper foot, and thought I'd share in case someone else has the same problem.  I uploaded a tutorial on my blog if anyone wants to bookmark for future reference....

I have the day off, and DH will be gone most of the day, so I am free (without DH's commments "when are you going to finish. . .") 

I have long thought about making something for sale for farmer's market, or art in the park.  So, I might try making hats.  I know most patterns state on them, that one cannot use them to make items for sale, so I will have to come up with my own pattern. 

Yup, think that is what I will do.

Actually, if you want to know the truth,  It's against the law for designers to restrict items made for sale. 

"Quilters are passionate about their craft and like most passionate people, they tend to focus on what they want to believe as opposed to what they should believe, and those beliefs should be based upon facts, statutes and court decisions. Most articles out there are written by people who quilt so their articles tend to reflect their biases. We do not quilt so our bias is reflected by facts, statutes and court decisions.

Christine, thanks for posting this link!  Very informative article with lots of supportive documentation.  This is an important topic and all of us who even consider selling a quilt or quilt design should know the facts.  Thanks again...

Thank you so much Christine.  Every pattern and book of patterns I have state that any items made from the pattern can only be for personal use and cannot be sold.  It is nice to know this is not true.  I am always careful however to give credit in anything I do to the designer, and never copy the pattern or design itself to give away.  I may give away the original once I have used it. 

I now have a hat pattern I developed and I am going to try and put it together this afternoon.   I have yet to fine a pattern that really fits my head so this will be an original.  (hats are usually propped up by my ears, not very comfortable. 

But I have lots of other patterns I have purchase over the years, that I now know I can use to make hats to sell.

Again, thanks so much.

Christine, I can't thank you enough for post this. I read and re-read the entire article. It cleared up so many questions I have had for so many years. This will help me in the future tremendously. I had always questioned this concept. I've been selling items of clothing I have made for years and always wondered when someone would try to sue me. I'm a happy camper now. Also, now I know where to go for many other questions and answers. Again, thanks so much.

Patti, love the hat.  You could make them in a larger brim too.  I'd want one.  What would you sell them for?

Patti, very neat hat!  I think these will do very well at a street or art fair.

 Have you decided on a price point?  To me that is the hardest thing...much harder than making the item...LOL!  You really don't want to sell yourself short, but if you price it too high you may not get many buyers.  It's a tough dilemma!

Also, love your new avatar!!!
