Testing, Testing..


I've fallen into a bit of a sewing slump, not sure if its a result of the move, new place, new sewing space, etc etc but I did have some commitments i've been working on I wanted to show..

Julie over at Distant Pickles put out a request a few weeks ago for some pattern testers. I jumped at the  chance, especially when I saw her pattern..
CURVES!
After having such a great time with the Retro Flowers
i jumped right in.. 

I actually printed the pattern, chose my fabrics and boxed it up, the day before I moved
so it arrived once I was settled with my machine and ready to go
Here's what I came up with..

I chose to keep it small and do the baby size quilt
despite initial trouble with the template size (Julie's worked out the kinks!)
it was a great pattern and came together relatively quickly


I'd definitely recommend it when Julie makes it available
I love how it gives you the chance for contrast in your colors
but both the blue and yellow (in my case) are dominant and stand out!

Julie has graciously offered to give a pattern to one of you!
All you need to do is leave me a comment.
That's it!
Giveaway will be open until Wednesday August 8th
7:30am PST 

Good luck!
