Writing Quilt Patterns - Customer Assumptions - STAR'D

Writing quilt patterns is a mystery to me sometimes.

Yet, not in the way you might expect.

The last pattern I published was STAR'D, which has been very popular; but almost every time that I stop into my local quilt shop, I hear the same thing.

Kristy, I got another request this week from a customer asking when you will be writing a version of STAR'D that includes different sizes (Twin, Queen, King). 





You see, STAR'D includes the instructions for a lap size quilt measuring 50" x 60". When I wrote it, I thought about adding information about how to make it larger, like I had with my other patterns. Yet, I assumed that people would just buy more background fabric and make it larger themselves, case closed.

Clearly I assumed too much. So I guess what I'm wondering is what do you expect from a pattern?

I want to hear from you, so leave me a comment below, or feel free to send me an email.
