Bands do a sound check before a concert, with a tech crew to adjust the sound levels and microphones until everything sounds exactly right. I like to do a test class before releasing a new pattern, with quilters as my "crew" to help find mistakes and give me feedback about whether the instructions are easy to understand.
It's time again to test a brand new quilt pattern - this time we'll be testing "Piecrust Pileup" at the Calico Hutch in Hayward, MN on Tuesday, April 14th. The quilt is made using fat quarters (18" x 21"), jelly rolls (2-1/2" strips) or honeybuns (1-1/2" strips). The shop is providing refreshments and dessert and I'll bring show and tell - should be fun! Contact the Calico Hutch to sign up.
So I guess I'd better get that second quilt done - can you tell which quilt in the photo above is in pieces on my design wall??
