No you don’t! You can upload and ‘play’ with an image without creating an account. You can create an account at any time, but you won't have to create an account until you decide to purchase your first YouPatch quilt pattern.
Once you have signed into a YouPatch account, you can purchase quilt patterns and store all your uploaded images in one place and come back to edit them whenever you like.
Also, as an account holder, YouPatch can store your purchasing information so you don’t have to enter in your details every time you order a new quilt pattern.
