Deep Breath and Small Steps

My mini quilt is sized to fit an Ackfeldwire 12" x 14" table topper stand.  Click here to see their selection.

Pretty excited here today, with a major case of the butterflies!  I'm finally venturing into the business world with one of my designs.  A small step forward;  oh, how it feels good to be starting.

  I've put together a PDF pattern  of my Get Your Seam Ripper Mini Quilt,

(which I debuted  during the Table Topper Blog Hop last month), available to you all.   You can find it  for sale at Craftsy .

It's a fun, easy design that you can make in less than a couple of hours. I'm showing a new version,  in a different colourway than the original - couldn't you see these making great gifts?  The pattern is tutorial style - lots of photos to accompany the steps and all the graphics are included for you to print out and use.  I would rate this project as beginner friendly, the sewing is very basic and everything else is straight forward.

My original version - because you know I love blue, red and polka dots!
The start of anything new can be scary and exciting all rolled up together.  Which is pretty much how I'm feeling today, but I'm taking a deep breath with these small steps and looking forward to the road ahead.

I'm considering this venture a WIP because I'm only getting started...I have plans for some more patterns to be uploaded as soon as I have them ready... so I'm going to link up with Lee for


  1. Congratulations on your very first pattern Katherine! Here’s to many more!

  2. Well done you for taking that first step. I am sure that it will grow and be a success. But it all has to start with one small step!

  3. I know how you feel! It's fantastic news. And I LOVE this mini quilt! LOL!!

  4. Good for you! I wish you every success! Your stuff is beautiful so you should have no problems :*)

  5. Congratulations! I hope your new venture goes really well.

    I love your sign. Today I subbed in a Grade 8 sewing class, and one student was in tears at having to unpick a seam several times. I tried to tell her we all do it, and a sign like yours would be fun to have in such a classroom.

  6. Don't we JUST love this one!!!!!!!

    My dear Katherine... too long I've been away. Have been thinking of you of late. Of course I do every day really... whenever I see that gorgeous pillow you made for me. That one Christmasy/wintery item that is NOT going into hiding over summer. I'll just pretend the snowflake is a stylized daisy (heheh).

    I see you've been having fun.....
    I have to take a closer look at some of the postings I've missed.

    Wishing you a wonderful day, m'friend.

  7. Congratulations and well done! I wish you all the success with this venture, and I'm sure you'll have it as your patterns are fab!

  8. So excited for you Katherine! You are one of the most talented sewers I have ever met, and I'm thrilled to see you taking this step!
    Miss you! S


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
