Digital Pattern FAQ


How do I download a digital pattern?
After purchasing a pattern, two things will happen:
1. You will be automatically transferred to a new page. Click the file name to download (red arrow)
The folder will automatically download. This is a zipped file that you will have to unzip.
2. You will be emailed with the file to download.

How to unzip a file:
1. If you only want one file then open the zipped folder, find the correct file format for your machine, then drag or copy the file from the zipped folder to a new location.
2. To unzip all the contents of the zipped folder, right-click the folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

The starts/ stops of my patterns don’t connect - how do I connect them?
Many of the patterns are inset patterns. Inset patterns create interlocked quilting designs.
Inset designs require that you overlap the single-repeats of your design until the edges connect.
For information on how to make your designs overlap, please refer to your personal computerised quilting system's manual - this function differs from system to system.

Do you do paper pantographs?
No, sorry. Maybe one day I will, but not right now

Can I request a design?
YES. I am currently building up my library of designs and need some inspiration. If you want your own custom design then there will be a design charge, however if you’re happy for the design to go up on the site shop then the pattern would be £10/14 like normal.

Other questions?
Email me at deborah@dastardlyline.com I’ve designed every pattern myself and tested them all on my machine, a 26” Innova with Autopilot, so hopefully I can help.
