Let's be reasonable...

is the title of a post from a blog I follow by Sheryl at Quilting Tizzy.  I have to say I agree with all her conclusions, which is why I am posting her button and the links to her post here. 

It's up to you to read all the materials involved and decide how you feel about the issue of whether a fabric or pattern designer has the right to control the use of the fabric in their design lines or their patterns.  My feeling is this:  once I buy the fabric or pattern, it's mine, and I can use it any way I want - whether to make items for myself and family or to sell.  Especially fabric.  If I have to face the possibility of a lawsuit because I made a quilt or tote bag and sold it to a friend (or anyone)  from a fabric that is "restricted", I'm not gonna' buy it. 

So go and read Sheryl's post and her other connected posts and see what you think about this growing "restriction" issue.  If you agree with us, post her button on your blog, too.
