Kati’s quilt top is done

November 11, 2014 in QUILTING

Back in June 2014, I was one of the pattern testers for Kati of From the Blue Chair for her pattern called ‘APPS’. I posted a photo of the few blocks that I had made here. Since then the blocks have languished on the back burner. I finally finished the blocks and put them up on the design wall. After numerous changes, here is the final layout.

Here are the blocks after they were trimmed to a square but at wonky angles. FYI… the dark color is the design wall not a border.

Here is my very bright and colorful version of Kati’s quilt pattern. I made a small wall hanging that measures 24″ x 36″. The binding will be mostly white with a few inserts of the black multicolor strip fabric that is the center of the block in the second row.

Pattern Tester

June 2, 2014 in QUILTING

I have been following Kati’s blog for some time and noticed that she was looking for a pattern tester. Surprisingly, she took me up on my offer. For the past couple of weeks,I have been working with Kati of fromthebluechair in testing her new pattern called ‘APPS’s. The design was inspired by a drawing from her six-year-old daughter.
The photo below shows some of the fabrics I will be using for my version. They are definitely bright and colorful. The pattern provides sizing requirements for baby, throw, twin and queen using two different block sizes: 6″ and 8″ finished blocks. There are also sketch sheets for each quilt size to aid in the layout process. Scroll down the page a bit and see the two quilts she made for the pattern here. Kati is also offering a 25% discount on all of her patterns and also has a fabulous giveaway!
