Has anyone here sold or are selling quilt patterns they have designed? How do you go about it? Do you sell just the pattern or do you sell it as a kit? Do you get it copywrited? and how is that done? Has it been worth all the trouble financially?
Thanks for any info you have.

That is something I have been working on. Right now, I have the patterns drawn, and working on the samples, the next step is submission, phew! I will let ya know how it works out.

two names that pop in my head are danmar and lockeb. I would ask them in a pm and maybe they can give you the gritty details you want.

Get a copy of this book. http://quiltwoman.com/publish-your-patterns.aspx
Read all you can on websites such as this one. http://www.ehow.com/how_5708700_self...-patterns.html
Join pattern design groups such as this one. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/quiltdesigners/
and this one http://groups.yahoo.com/group/QuiltPatternTesters/
That should all give you some good ideas! Good luck. :-D

Thanks for any info you have.
You can go to "YouCanMakeThis.com" They have a quilting section and you can sell your patterns, if they are your design.
Hope this helps you.
