Fabric, Improv & Volunteers

Lookie what came in the mail this week, a 1/2 yd bundle (aptly named "Half to Have It") of Cynthia Frenette's Modern Quilts collection.  She was hosting a giveaway a week or so ago and I put my name in the hat.  What do you know, I actually won.  Thanks Cynthia, I can't wait to use this.



-------------------------------------------------------------

So, whatcha doing September 1st?  Do you live near St. Louis?
                  Wanna join me at Fabric Nosherie

I'll be teaching an Improv piecing class that Saturday, showing you the methods I use to create Improv blocks, similar to those shown below.


For those who are afraid of Improv piecing or don't exactly know what it is; but are intrigued.  This is the class for you.  Stop into Fabric Nosherie to learn more and hopefully I'll see you on September 1st.




----------------------------------------------------------------

Finally, I'm looking for some help.  You see, I'm working on my next quilt pattern to follow up MAZED and am seeking a handful of Pattern Testers.   

**Updated 8/17/12:  
Thank You to everyone who contacted me about volunteering,
I now have enough Pattern Testers**

What does a Pattern Tester do?
  • Read the quilt pattern thoroughly and provide feedback to make sure it is understandable
  • Make a few blocks following the directions
  • Join in on a Blog Hop (to be scheduled) with other participants
In exchange for your help, you'll receive a complimentary copy of the finished pattern along with a copy to giveaway on your Blog during the Blog Hop.  I'll also toss in a few extra goodies for your time/effort too. 

Does this sound like fun?  Wanna Volunteer? or would you like more information?  Shoot me an email or leave a comment on this post stating so.  The pattern will be ready for testing in the next few weeks.

MAZED - my 1st pattern
