Piers – Pattern Testing

One of the upsides of self-isolating ?! My agenda became very light for this Spring 😉 So when Julie @builtaquilt asked me if I was willing to test her new pattern I was happy to agree ! I chose the Baby size option. I know I know … the easiest choice when testing a pattern … 😉 Un des bons côtés du confinement ?! Mon agenda s’est bien allégé pour ce printemps 😉 Donc quand Julie @builtaquilt m’a demandé si j’étais disposée à tester son nouveau modèle, j’ai été ravie d’accepter. J’ai choisi l’option Baby quilt. Je sais, je sais … le… +

Horizon Quilt – Testers

A few weeks ago, as I finished writing instructions for my Horizon quilt, I called for testers on Instagram. I did myself a few pattern testing for other designers and I know it takes some time. That means make notes along the process, double-check measurements and validate instructions. So I was happy to find several people willing to be my “guinea pigs”. Il y a quelques semaines, comme je finissais d’écrire les instructions de mon quilt Horizon, j’ai lancé un appel à testeurs sur Instagram. J’ai moi-même participé à quelques tests pour d’autres designers et je sais que cela prend… +

Quilts patterns

Last June, when I posted pictures of my Horizon quilt, I mentioned my intention to publish a pattern. It took me some time to get started … but this project is now well under way. I redesigned in inches my original Throw size quilt. I also did the maths for a Baby size version and made it in a completely different palette. The pattern will come in two sizes and is bilingual English and French. En juin dernier, quand j’ai posté des photos de mon quilt Horizon, j’ai mentionné mon intention de publier un modèle. J’ai pris un peu de… +

Pattern testing

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of testing ‘Diaspora’, a pattern designed by my friend Pachy @psbquilts. Il y a quelques semaines, j’ai eu le plaisir de tester “Diaspora” un modèle dessiné par mon amie Pachy @psbquilts. While at Quiltcon last February I bought a bundle of Snap to Grid collection by Kimberly Kight for Cotton and Steel Fabrics that I was very anxious to use. So I decided it was the perfect fabric pull for Pachy’s pattern and combined it to matching solids 🙂 For the background I used two Essex Linen fabrics, Charcoal and Black. A Quiltcon… +

Mountains and Valleys Pattern

Do you remember that design ?! My friend Julie @builtaquilt has released her first pattern today ! And actually you already had a glimpse at it here since I tested the Baby quilt size for her last Spring. Vous souvenez-vous de ce design ?! Mon amie Julie @builtaquilt lance son premier modèle aujourd’hui ! Et en fait vous en avez déjà eu un aperçu ici puisque j’ai testé pour elle la version Baby quilt ce printemps. I chose to mix solids and striped fabrics instead of playing with colour values – dark, medium and light. You can read more about the process… +

Baby quilt

One more finished project from my list for the Finish-Along, just in time for the second quarter ! Encore un dernier projet terminé de ma liste pour le Finish-Along, juste à temps pour le deuxième trimestre ! This quilt was made for testing a pattern designed by Julie, @builtaquilt on Instagram. You may remember I already used this design in a previous project. My first blocks ended too small and then it wasn’t possible to use them to validate the assembly instructions. I turned the first attempt into a wall hanging. Pink Invaders is the happy outcome of a mistake ! Ce quilt a été… +

Pink Invaders – A finished quilt

Pink Invaders … Is the kind of title you end up with when you ask your guys some help to find a proper name for your quilt. Especially when you have at home three geeks who often refer to Science Fiction movies and video games … And since I had no better idea, Pink Invaders it is ! Pink Invaders (Les envahisseurs roses) … C’est le genre de titre qu’on obtient quand on demande à ses gars de l’aide pour trouver un nom approprié à un quilt. Particulièrement si on a trois geeks à la maison qui font souvent référence… +

A few projects in the works

I worked on different projects these past few days. One of them is pattern testing for Julie, @builtaquilt on Instagram. I will write a specific post about it in a near future but I can’t resist to show you the block now since I really love it … 🙂 J’ai travaillé sur différents projets ces derniers jours. L’un d’eux est le test d’un modèle pour Julie, @builtaquilt sur Instagram. J’écrirai un article spécifique prochainement mais je ne peux pas résister de vous montrer le bloc maintenant car je l’adore … 🙂 I had to make a second sample for my… +
