copycat-snowman I saw the cutest mini snowman quilt on Pinterest and knew I wanted to make it into a mug rug for my dads’ wife for Christmas.  I would love to have used little buttons for the eyes, but I had none on hand, and wanted it completed the night I worked on it, so cross-eyed he is.  All pieced, outline quilted, then bound by hand.

How do you give credit for inspiration?  Do you show the original and then how you changed it?  Do you give a link or just a shout out?  Do you bother to show the inspiration?


EDITED:  Thanks for the answer on how to give the link for credit of the inspiration piece!


Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts.  And A Quilting Reader’s Garden. And I Heart Naptime.  And OhScrap!

I usually give the link when I mention where I got the inspiration. Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment. I updated the post and the link is now there at WIPs Be Gone.

First of all, I love your snowman block. Second, as a newish blogger and quilter, I have wondered what the protocol is as well. I usually share the inspiration with a photo and link back to the blogger/site. After it’s published, I usually contact the author, thank her for inspiring me, let her know about my post and that I linked right back to her. As I update my project, I continue link back to the original post. Thus far this protocol has been successful.

Again, your snowman is lovely and I don’t see the “cross eyes!” 🙂

That’s a lovely mug rug, and will make a delightful gift.

Very cute indeed!


Cute snowman mug rug. You’ve done great by providing the link to the inspiration. I seldom give credit on blogs unless the pattern is unique. Traditional patterns are all over the place and most would not be considered copyrighted, which is the issue behind the concept of giving credit.
