I think that it is important to point out that this pattern is called
"Seattle Streets" and the designer Laurie Biethan has asked that it always be referred to as such, as part of her conditions for sharing it.

The following statement is taken from her pattern...

"Feel free to enjoy, share, teach classes, or sell finished products using this pattern, but please don't sell it as your own or try to profit from it otherwise

I'd also appreciate credit where possible, especially by using the name, Seattle Streets, whenever you write something about your quilt. And PLEASE do not market classes or anything from this pattern under any name other than Seattle Streets. Since I gave away the pattern for free, the name is all I have and the only way I can keep track of where it ends up! Thanks so much!"

I think, as a group, we should respect the designers wishes and put the title on all material that references her design.

Thanks, Jennifer, and thanks Claire! I found this page by tracking back from someone who came to my blog via your link. What you have up in the blog post now is just great. I really appreciate your giving me the credit (and listing the pattern name) because it makes my day whenever I see the pattern getting love from around the world! :-)

Happy quilting! I hope you'll send me photos when you're done.
