Proofreading and Testing

I have discovered over the past couple of years that I love to pattern test or proofread patterns for other designers. It not only gives me a deadline to do a project, but can help me stretch my skills or learn new ways to do different techniques. As a quilter I love piecing and paper piecing; both EPP and PP. I am improving my Appliqué techniques but haven’t decided if turning or raw edge is my favourite. It’s just too much fun, in my opinion to help other designers finish their tests and get them published.

Cindy Staub of Quilt Doodle Designs recently asked for proofreaders to proof her Snowmen Snow Globe Block of the Month. I volunteered and must say it is a fun, sweet Christmas or winter quilt. This was done with Marcus Fabrics Primo Plaid Flannels New Blues Collection. Isn’t it incredibly beautiful? I’m adding a link below for the Marcus Fabrics page which gives all of the details regarding this BOM including the list of the participating retailers where you can get the BOM.

If you only do one BOM this year, this is the one! It’s beautiful and the pattern is very well written and easy to follow.

Have fun fondling fabric and enjoy your week! 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
