Ruffle Crush Tester Quilts

Hope everyone's summer is going well! We are keeping busy here--my son had a birthday this last week and we had a fun but sort of basic birthday party for him. T-shirt decorating, pinata, presents, and homemade cookie cake. My sewing machine had to go to the shop for a little while but I actually got it back sooner than I expected and was able to do a little bit of sewing last week. It runs so nicely now and I found a new place that has the best sewing machine servicing prices in town!

Anyway I wanted to thank everyone for their support of my Ruffle Crush quilt pattern. I have some photos to share from my testers, in case you wanted to see more examples of what this quilt can look like.

Sharon made this lovely pink and brown version (I think these fabrics are from the Lily and Will line by Moda):

And Molly made this one from Fig Tree fabrics:

Molly blogs at Stitch-N-Thyme Designs and she blogged about this quilt for the Blogger's Quilt Festival back in May. 

I really appreciate my testers, they had great suggestions for this pattern--thank you again! I'm hoping to share photos from my other 2 pattern testers soon. :)

Vicki, you're right about the Lily and Will fabric. I'm going to hand quilt it for a class I'm taking at Harper's next month. I'll send more pictures when it's finished.

I'm still very sad I didn't get to test! I was the first comment and emailed very soon after the post went up :(
But still, a great pattern...I will definitely be purchasing one in my future!

Anon--I'm really sorry I couldn't choose everyone who wanted to test this pattern. I think I might get a list of people together who'd like to test my patterns so that I can include a good number of diverse people over time as I write more patterns. I will write a blog post inviting people to sign up for that list when I get the next 2 patterns close to ready.
