Amazing how similar this is to a House of White Birches quilt published 16 years ago. You made the triangle squares bigger so there was no room for the extra stars, but it is the same pattern and I don't think you should be charging for it.
I am unfamiliar with House of White Birches. Those who like and want Sparkle Plenty purchase it and those who do not have the option not to. I suppose any one publishing a pattern opens themselves up to criticism. Sadly it becomes part of the business.
There is simply no way that any quilt designer could be aware of every single quilt pattern ever designed. Loftcreations has every right to charge for this pattern if she created it, whether or not someone created something similar at some time in the past. She is the one who sat down and figured out how the shapes go together, and then she wrote them into a pattern that the rest of us can use. This is a lovely pattern, and I'm going to purchase it now to support the artist who designed it.
What a beautiful quilt love the radiating stars.
