Calling all Quilters

Did you read my blog post from yesterday?  If you think you would be interested in testing my patterns for me and sharing what you created (on your blog if you have one), let me know.  Please leave me a comment on this post. Also be sure your comment ID links to your blog or site so that I can see samples of your work.  If your ID doesn't link back to you, please provide some sort of link in your comment.

Note:  Only serious inquiries please.  I would like some sort of commitment that you could create the quilt within a one to two month period.  The sizes of the two quilt patterns are approximately 24" x 38" and 24" x 26".  The pattern would be provided, free of charge, as a pdf download that is printed on 8.5" x 11" paper and taped together.

Edit:  Please also note that I do not provide any instructions on how to construct the quilt.  I want to see your version and how you interpret it, using your favorite techniques.

The two patterns I want quilt testers for are these:


P.S.  I hope to have 2 or 3 quilters for each design and you will only be expected to make one of the designs.  I will announce the chosen testers here on the blog next week (around Tuesday, Oct 8).

  4. Terri, I would love to test your patterns for you! I have been an admirer of your artwork for a long time and would really like to work with you! I have both an active blog at http://margiekraft.blogspot.com/ and a website at www.mustardseedquilting.com

  5. I have no blog, I have a FB album, have joined a 12x12 group this last year and have stretched myself. I rarely use block patterns and create my own work.
    I think I would be intersted in working with one or more of your patterns, I have machine quilted one or two things but I am a hand quilter, and a fast hand quilter as well. So if you are looking for that twist on one of your creations, I would be glad to give it a shot. Suzanne Camp Kesaheke Cosmo.

  8. Hi Terri, I am glad to see you have a good response already.
    I would love to test one of your patterns but I am a slow quilter and I seem to have myself too busy right now. If you do this again in the future keep me in mind please Kathy

  10. It will be fantastic to see how your design might be translated by other quilters. I adore the graphic style you use but I am willing to bet they will be equally adorable in many different styles and techniques.
    Looks like you are getting a great response. I would be happy to test one of these and show the process on my blog....LOVE the 3 kitties

  12. Hi Terri,
    I would also be delighted and honored to be a pattern tester for you. My expertise would be machine applique/buttonhole stitch, if you're interested in that, and perhaps a little thread play. I'm thinking something anyone could easily pick up and do.

  13. Wow Terri - what a great opportunity! I have been a big admirer of your art since I found you through MarveLes Leslie, and your whimsical kitty designs are my favorite. I must admit I haven't done a lot of art quilting - getting creative with threads and stencils etc. I'm a fairly traditional sort of girl with a touch of modern thrown in, as you will see from my blog. But I love to play and learn and experiment, and I have some fun threads I picked up at the last quilt show. So if you think I could bring something interesting to your pattern, I'd love to give it a go!

    FYI - The two-month time frame would probably work best for me since I have a couple of commitments that will keep me focused for the next month.

  19. Terri,
    I would be thrilled to be a pattern tester. I have a degree in art education which has helped me tremendously with quilting. See my work on Pinterest under Candy Buria "Quilts I've Made".
