Testing, Testing. One Two Three

I am pattern testing for Cheryl, as I told you. She said we can post in progress pictures and stories this time.

The pattern is Looking Glass. It's easy to put together, but looks more complicated. Here's my fabric choice:

Really nice, bright colors!  Maybe a little heavy on the yellow side tho.

Did you know that 5" squares, aren't? These measured a little more than 5". Means I had to trim them down before I could begin. Part of the reason to use pre-cuts, to me, is that the cutting is already done for me. Not so.

So here's the first block, my test block:

I'm making a baby-sized quilt, but I'm afraid these colors would keep a baby up!

Here's my layout:

It's going together so easily, I'm impressed!

I did catch an error in the wording of Cheryl's pattern tho. She said, "along their savage edges." Those savages! How dare they! Are they savage selvedges?

Oh, I have seen a savage selvedge. It is a rare and mythical beast, but truly ugly to behold. :) How fun that you are pattern testing for Cheryl again!

I love the fabrics you are using, so bright and bold! I know what you mean about precuts not being the actual size. One time I was using a layer cake and could not figure out whay my seams were not matching up. Not only were the precuts not 10" square, they were not even square with one side almost a 1/4" wider than the other.

Thanks again so much for testing for me!
