Printed Patterns

I have a tendency to dream about things for a long time before I actually do them, especially if it's something that will stretch my abilities. The less I know about how to tackle something, the longer I will procrastinate on it. Thankfully, making the move to printed patterns is no longer just a dream 😊

What a wonderful feeling to open the box when it arrived!

I started with just two patterns. Love Birds is one of my personal favourites and Churn is the one I most often see that others have made, from the 2018 Quilter's Planner. (As an aside, do you have a planner for next year yet? If not, the 2019 Quilter's Planner (affiliate link) would be a great choice!)

I may have been just a little excited about the first shops that said yes to carrying the patterns. Of course, the first two shops are both within walking distance of my house, lol. Hand delivering their patterns was fun, too 😊

The printed patterns are now available in my Etsy shop, so if you prefer to have the paper version of a pattern, click to get your copy.

I have my Reach for the Stars pattern ready to be printed and I'm working on the Medallion Magic pattern now. The plan is to have both of them printed before the end of the year and then hopefully 2019 will see a flurry of patterns moving to the printed state. I'm behind on releasing patterns now, so I have lots to work on!

If you know of a quilt shop that might be interested in my patterns, please let me know!


  1. Congratulations on this big milestone, Leanne, and how awesome to get to hand deliver your first printed pattern sales!

  2. Congratulations - a real achievement. I can sympathise with procrastinating over tasks that stretch us out of our comfort zones! I am just the same!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
