What is a Pattern PDF and how do I print it?

A Pattern PDF is a digital file of the complete pattern instructions and full-size pattern pieces.  You will also be emailed Welcome Notes.

After purchase, a link to the Pattern PDF will be sent to you automatically – click the link to get your pattern.  This link expires after 24 hours, but we can re-send it to you if you have any trouble. Just email us at admin@eobquiltdesign.com

  • All pattern booklets are 8.5” x 11” and can be printed on an in-home printer.

  • The full-size pattern pieces will need to be put on a USB stick and taken to a copy shop that can print in large format.

  • This will be an additional expense for you. However, a Pattern PDF is priced at 25% off the print pattern price because of this additional expense to you.

  • Please check in your area that you have a copy shop that can print the pattern for you before purchasing.

  • This Pattern prints on paper that is:   12" x 18"
