This started on September 10th, with the cutting instructions, and will go through November 26th with a Link-up Party to show off our creations.

Unlike Project Linus, Gracie’s Get Well Garden, this is not a Mystery.  We not only know what the finished quilt will look like, we have been given 4 sizes to choose from:  Baby, Crib, Lap or Full size.  Several different color schemes have been demonstrated and even a scrappy option has been suggested.

Pattern Testing–Fabric Café’s Modern Views with 3-Yard Quilts–Part 4

A lot of work goes into creating a book of patterns. Before the tops were made, the written patterns were reviewed/edited by a number of individuals.  Then two of us used the pattern to make a top, making notes, corrections, or comments along the way.  Once the top was made, then the other tester made the same top using the edited pattern and different fabrics.

There are 8 patterns in Fabric Café’s newest book, and I tested 7 of them.
