During the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, my co-host Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs started cultivating a fantastic idea: a pattern writing blog series. I am so excited that this past Monday, Cheryl announced the pattern writing blog series is going to start in January 2016. I am looking forward to following along and being a participant in the “round table” discussions with other amazing pattern designers that Cheryl has cultivated.
The series will take you step by step from a quilt design in a sketchbook all the way through to a fully developed quilt pattern. To make the series less abstract and more practical, I will be demonstrating each step by working through an actual quilt pattern (that will be available as a free pattern at the end of the series).
There is no right way or wrong way to write a quilt pattern, so a number of wonderful pattern designers will be joining me for round table discussions and additional posts to give different perspectives and opinions on the design and writing processes. With me will be (in alphabetic order) Amy of 13 Spools, Anne of Springleaf Studios, Christa of Christa Quilts, Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts, Soma of Whims and Fancies, and Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl.
Some topics that will be included are:
- Pattern basics
Do you have any questions about pattern writing that you want to see if we can address during this series? Leave a comment below and Cheryl and I and the round table team of pattern designers will do our best to answer your questions.
