Have you wanted to write your own quilt pattern?
I am sharing the two most useful tools I use to create and write my quilt patterns, plus I’m sharing a coupon code for one of them!
WHAT I USE TO WRITE QUILT PATTERNS:
1. I first design my quilt using the Electric Quilt 8 program (EQ8). It is THE BEST program out there for creating quilt patterns. I’ll show you a little video tutorial of what it can do.
If you are interested in buying the EQ8 program, you can use this coupon code to save 20% off their entire website until March 31st, 2020. COUPON CODE: EQ8Elizabeth Website: Electric Quilt Website Direct Link to EQ8: EQ8 LINK
2. After I design my quilt, I use Adobe Illustrator (AI) to write my patterns. I actually used Microsoft Word to write my first pattern. It worked, but it wasn’t pretty. I didn’t even know how unattractive and clunky it was until I really started doing my homework. I will never turn back from using AI.
I have thought about creating an online course for how to write quilt patterns. I’m thinking it would include step by step tutorials on using EQ8, AI specifically for writing quilt patterns, and some business tips on marketing, printing patterns, and the like.
Would you be interested in a course like that? If so, click HERE and I will get in touch and see if there’s enough interest and share some more ideas with y’all.
Do you have other questions about writing quilt patterns? There’s SO much to share on the topic, but if you have questions, leave a comment and I could even write another blog post answering some more specific questions if there’s an interest.
And if you are a quilter not interested in quilt pattern writing, that’s great, too! We need both the pattern writers and the pattern users! 😉
If you are interested in writing quilt patterns, I highly recommend looking into the EQ8 program and using that 20% discount while you can.
Happy quilting and quilt pattern writing, if that’s your jam.
