Some of you may have noticed we now are selling a few of our designs as two board seats.The reason for this has several parts to it. The first is, I liked the design and thought it would make a good pattern board. The problem I found when I went to make the design into a pattern board was it was ether too large for the design to fit on a board or it was too small. We like to keep the designs around 24" wide and 10" tall but I will go up to 28" and that is pretty much the limit for shipping and finding boxes to fit the boards. Due to the designs that I use from other designers I have limited control of where to break the design apart for the repeat, so sometimes the boards get to be a little smaller that 24" wide to also keep them around 10" tall. Since some of the design and the repeat was getting to be larger than 28" more like 32" and larger, I decided to sell the designs on smaller boards like less than 18". My concern was I did not think it was fair to sell a small design board for the full price of $46.00, since the smaller boards are about the size of the block board we sell for $30.00 I thought a fair price would be $60.00 as you're getting two boards. Personally I thought this was a good deal, as it takes me twice as long to make a two board set as just a single board and I have more cost for material in a two board set.

Thanks for your concerns

We are so glad that you are inquiring about our pattern boards. Our company developed out of Sharon’s love of quilting and Ron’s craftsmanship with computers and woodworking. Our family owned and operated company provides high quality pattern boards for the professional and home quilter. Pattern boards, which can be used with short, mid, and long arm quilting frames, will provide consistency and speed to quilting your quilt tops. Quilting will become more fun and less stressful. Our aim is to create reasonably priced quality pattern boards and provide a service to customize personal quilt designs. This website provides information about the design boards that we have created so far, although we will experiment with any ideas that our customers send us.

Our boards are made of a strong, light-weight PVC like material with nonskid backing. The designs are created on a computer and cut out by an industrial automated router. Multiple templates can be connected end-to-end to make longer templates. Connectors are supplied as part of the order. The templates are made to be used with a stylus that is connected to the sewing machine that you use with a quilt frame (such as B-line, Handi Quilter, APQS, etc). We now make a stylus for many of the quilt machines.

We hope this gives you some basic information about our pattern boards and our company. We would be glad to answer any questions you may have and we hope to hear from you soon.
