Pattern Ghost Writing Services

I have a pattern design idea but have no clue where to start!

Does that sound like you?  All those designs are floating through your head but getting the instructions down on paper seem daunting?

If so, then this is for you!  I'm not a designer but I've found I can take someone's design and turn it into a fully-written pattern including diagrams, and I love doing it.

Generally, a client will provide the quilt design and rough sizing, as well as the color scheme and desired number of sizes, and I’ll take it from there.  I will write and use digital diagrams, put it into a Word document, then you can place it in your pattern template (or, if you need it, I can do that as well).  You will retain full rights and authorship of the pattern


If you have a particular formatting style you would like to use, I'm open to that. If not, I write in a very logical and detailed format, making it easy-to-follow for your customers. But remember, this is YOUR pattern, so if you want changes, we can work together to get it the way YOU want.

The fine print stuff:

  • Billing is included on the spreadsheet in 15 minute increments; rates available upon request.

  • The work can be concluded at that stage, but many clients will generally make their changes and come back for a quick check for the updated pattern (billed at the same rates).

  • I will present an invoice with the final pattern edits; please pay it within 48 hours. It can be paid via Paypal or Venmo (your choice).

  • We agree to keep each other’s work and intellectual property completely confidential.

Note: once I provide a final draft, I recommend sending it to a separate tech editor. I cannot effectively tech edit a pattern I have written.

Lisa has done a couple patterns for me and they have worked so well! She is easy to work with, has great communication, and writes in a very explanatory way.


I have a design and need a Ghost Writer!

Thanks for submitting! I'll be in touch shortly.
