Two weeks ago I volunteered for pattern testing.
Ester is a quilter and designer of the Netherlands, she asked on her blog “Ipatchandquilt” for testing a foundation piecing star block. The block is similar to a Mandala and it spoke to me.
- Print the pattern. As the original foundation is meant for a 8″ block, I scaled the size. It ended up at approximate 28 cm. And I drew the foundation on a lightweight paper, so I will see the fabric easily when sewing.
- 8 foundations.
- Fabric choice: pink and purple, what else 😉
- Start sewing at No. 1
- When ever possible I use chain sewing.
- It all went smoothly. All quarters fitted perfectly.
- Step back and admire!
Thank you Ester, it was done in no time and it was fun to sew as well.
