Wanted: Pattern Testers

Posted on: May 30th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon
Happy Friday everyone!  Not much sewing has been going on in my world this week.  I have been working on a couple of new mini quilt designs.
Now that the ‘not fun’ part is done, I am waiting on a shipment of new Kona Solids to arrive from my favourite online shop, Mad About Patchwork.  They have just moved to a new location and are really excited for their Grand Opening date of June 3rd.  Pam contacted me about sponsoring a new project.  I showed her these two mini quilt designs.

Ombre Sewing Studio mini Quilt – 17″ x 32″

Ombre Sewing Studio mini Sew – 14″ x 33″
Pam is offering the quilt kits in her shop here.  And I will be supplying the patterns.
If any of you are interested in pattern testing, I would LOVE to hear from you!  You can use fabrics from your stash or you will be able to purchase the kit from Mad About Patchwork.  Leave me a comment or email me at sewfreshquilts {at} gmail {dot} com if you are interested and let me know which mini you would prefer to do the testing for.

Edited to Add:  When am I looking to have the testing done?  The sooner – the better.  I am looking for people who can commit to making this project a priority.

May 27th was the final day for voting in the AccuQuilt Block Design contest.  Thank you ALL for your dedicated support and kind words of encouragement throughout the contest.  I really appreciate knowing that even though I have never met you, I can count on you as a friend!

Hearty Congratulations to my arch nemesis, Will Bennett!

    I would love to test out either pattern for you, both are so cute!

  6. Shauna says:

    Those are too too cute. I would love to test but when does it have to be done? I've got several things on my plate right now and don't want to promise and not be able to finish.

  7. Beth says:

    These look really fun and lots of Kona in my stash. When do you need them June is crazy with vacation stuck in there? Let me know. I like them both but would prefer the quilt one.

  8. Lorna, I would love to test this pattern for you. I have many Kona solids in my stash that would be perfect for. The ombré look. The first on is my favorite. Contact me at Sweetdreamsquilting01 at gmail dot com

    I would be honored to test out the 2nd pattern (longer one). I have done some pattern testing in the past and could provide a reference if you would like.Thank you for the opportunity.

  10. Unknown says:

    I have never pattern tested but very interested. I could start right away and only work minimal hours at my out if home job.;) I would love to work up the taller version 18 x 33.

  11. Hello Angela! I would love to take you up on your offer to pattern test. However, you are a no reply blogger because of your Google plus profile. Please email me.

  12. Deanna says:

    Great patterns – love the ombre. Do you need to have them made with solids? I emailed you to test!

  13. Lisa says:

    Looks so fun! Love to test

  14. Sheri says:

    I would like to be a pattern tester and could do this pattern quick.

  15. Studio V says:

    In would love to pattern test this for you!!

  16. Vicki says:

    You probably have all the testers you need, but if not, I'll test it for you! I am in love with these patterns.

  17. Debbie says:

    I would be glad to test for you. Either the 14×33 or 17×32. I have tons of fabric. When I am not sleeping, I am quilting. You want it back tomorrow correct?😊

  18. Hi Debbie! I would love to have you do the pattern testing, but you are no reply, and have no blog attached to your profile. Can you please email me?

  19. Jayne says:

    What great designs! And I love seeing so many willing to test your pattern…how cool is that? I think you are covered in the pattern testing help department! You go girl! (sorry…seemed the right thing to say…)

  20. Nancy in IN says:

    I would love to test your pattern.

  21. Love your new patterns and would love to test one but at this time in my life I am unable to make commitments. I hope you share the results of the testers. Maybe next time I can join in the test.

  22. I would like to test your pattern, I have only been sewing about a year and have never tested anything before. As I'm not a professional sewer. I could also let you know how easy or difficult the pattern is for the average person. As I'm finishing a project now the timing is great. It would be out of my stash however. Thanks for your consideration

  23. Rosa says:

    I would love to test 14 x 33.Could I use any color or must be in these fabric combo?

  24. I would love to test either pattern for you. I have just completed the Martha Pullen Teacher Licensing for Beginner Sewers (her first ever online program) and we were required to sew a crazy patch pillow and a quilted pillow sham as some of our projects. I can provide photos for you. I have lots of fabric, but may consider purchasing the kit depending on how my colors work. I can be reached at dianebevis at gmail dot com

  25. Lin's Quilts says:

    I hope you would consider me to test for you. I would want to order the fabrics, but could start right away. I imagine you have way more testers than you need, so no worries.Lin

  26. Vera says:

    Cool design Lorna. Well done. Sorry to say there is too much on my plate to pattern test for you.
