Noughts and Crosses - Tester Versions

Posted by on

There is so much that goes into writing a pattern: coming up with the design, sketching it out in a design program, creating the step by step illustrations, writing the actual text, picking the perfect fabrics for the cover quilt, making the cover quilt, going back and editing the pattern, triple checking the math again, the list goes on...

After all that, the pattern gets sent to my testers. I can't even tell you how much I love this group of ladies and the time and effort they put into making the quilt top and giving me their feedback. 

Once everyone sends their feedback, I print a new pattern draft and write down every single note. Here's what that looks like:

Not only do they make every pattern better, but they take it and put their own spin on it with their fabric selections. It is such a joy to watch their version come to life on Instagram and see their interpretations of my pattern. 

In no particular order, here are the amazing quilts my testers made. If you are on Instagram, go follow them! Not only do they share stunning work, they are a joy to get to know!

Amanda (@broadclothstudio) made this one. I adore her fabric placement. Not using white as the background really changes the whole look. Also, her photo skills are on point!

Jo (@turtlequilterjo) used the perfect batik for the cornerstones. Also, her grandson is a fantastic quilt holder!
