Sneak peek

Here's a little sneak peek at what I've been working on this week.  Well actually, what you're seeing here has been made for a while, but the related pattern writing has taken a good chunk of the past week.



Now I need pattern testers!  This quilt is a bit modern, involves simple piecing and some simple applique, and measures 55" x 62".  I need volunteers to follow the pattern to make the top then give me feedback about the clarity and accuracy of the pattern.  Testing just a block and/or the applique part would also be helpful.

If you are interested in being one of the first to make this one (in time for the eclipse in August!) let me know and I'll send you a peek of the whole quilt to help you decide.  Thanks for thinking about it!

  2. Sorry I am away from the machine and all my fabric but love that appliqué - looks like a lovely sunflower. The quilting design on it is perfect too, by the way =)

  4. You certainly don't want me doing any applique for you! But I think I have a name for it maybe. Could it be "The Day the World Went Dark" ? or maybe Went Black? Your work is gorgeous, as always! ---"Love"

  5. Oh, I wish I had time! Am getting ready for two quilt shows and I played too much and time got away from me, so now I'm in high gear! Looks pretty interesting! Good luck!

  6. I love that sunflower, it is so pretty! I'd love to volunteer to test the pattern. I have a baby quilt I need to have done by early November. The flimsy is done, I just need to hand quilt it. Do you think I could squeeze in a test quilt?

  7. I would love to test for you but I don't think I would be able to get it done on time. Maybe next time.

  9. I'd love to volunteer but I such a slow poke it wouldn't be made until next year - if that! The sneak peek looks good so far.
