Do You Design?

Both of us do some pattern design from time to time. Neither one of us finds it too terribly difficult. I think one of the hardest parts of pattern design is getting it ready for others to use. However, if you are making a pattern strictly for your own use, it really isn’t that hard.

So, I have a question…have you ever created your own quilt or craft pattern?

If so, here are some other questions…

  1. What did you design?
  2. How did you go about it? Did you just sketch out a preliminary idea? Did you use graph paper? Have you just whipped something up as you went along (this would scare the heck out of me!).
  3. Where did you get your inspiration from?

In the next couple of days I’ll be blogging about the cutest piece of wall art Sue made for her little granddaughter for Christmas. Here’s a picture of the finished project. Sue made this in an evening and so can you, I’m pretty sure. By the way, “You are my Sunshine” is one of the first songs MY little granddaughter learned to sing. It’s a favorite.Image
