Pattern Testing – Sneak Peak

25 10 2014

A couple or so weeks ago, I volunteered to test a quilt pattern for a fellow blogger. I’ve worked on it in fits and starts, then realized yesterday that my deadline was coming due.

Now, I’m the kind of person who just loves deadlines. It makes me reach farther, work harder and faster.

Admittedly, most of the work is done at the 11th hour, as I’m watching the clock and shorting myself on sleep.

So, over the last two evenings, my sewing machine and I had a lot of quality time together, and I finished the top. In all fairness, I’d gotten to the halfway point before taking some time away from it, despite making the king-sized version of the top.

Pattern Testing - Fabrics

Before even having the pattern in my mailbox, I had an idea of what two fabrics to start with – they’re the two coordinating prints in the middle row, on the right. I also knew that I’d be using two Connecting Threads Solids, in gray and a very pale ecru color (I’d give specific names, but I believe that the ecru-colored fabric is discontinued). From there, I mixed and matched, going for a more gender neutral color palette. I was thinking that this quilt should go on hubby’s and my bed.

High Tea Sneak Peak

Once the pattern is published in a few days, I’ll publish some photos of the full top. I have a plan for the quilting. I just need to figure out the backing and binding.
