A Call for Testers

If you are on Instagram, you probably already saw this, but I wanted to ask any of you bloggers out there who aren't on IG, if you wanted to help out too. I am SO close to finishing my next quilt pattern! Giving myself an obligation to finish it will definitely give me that extra oomph I need to get it done. SO... my goal is to send it out to testers by this weekend.

Pattern name: Ribbon Candy

Would you like to pattern test it for me??

Last night I shared the quilt top of my next quilt pattern, Ribbon Candy. The pattern is so close to being done... I just need a little extra motivation to get it done. Does anyone have some extra time and want to pattern test for me? (it's a quick patter

I shared my finished baby quilt size top for the first time at the Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild meeting last night. (I like to keep my patterns a little bit of a surprise until the release date. makes it a little more fun I think!)


If you would like to test it for me, leave a comment with your email. If you decide you hate it, or life happens and can't complete it, I totally understand. But please be honest in your commitment and don't sign up knowing you won't be able to complete it. I ask that you have a finished quilt top (doesn't have to be a finished quilt, but finished is better) by the end of February. (it's a fast pattern. The baby size can easily be finished in a few hours.) I will also organize a blog hop when the pattern is released, just like I did with my Grandma's Lawn Chair pattern, lots of pattern giveaways included! ;) Also, I will have specific questions I'd like to get feedback on. Pattern testing = I want all the feedback you can give me! The good and the ugly. I can take it.


It's a very quick pattern and jelly roll friendly. The pattern is for three sizes: baby, crib, and lap. It includes templates as well as instructions for not using templates. There are lots of diagrams and instructions. And instructions for lots of variations, to make the process as smooth as possible for however you want to make it! :) I am really excited to get this finished, and will be making myself a lap size quilt with my stack of Anna Maria Horner's True Colors that I recently purchased. :) (thank you #thegreatfabricdestash and everyone who helped me destash, errrr, trade out my stash.)

  14. I would be happy to test it for you since you say it goes together so quickly. I've been quilting just over a year. I really enjoy your blog, but I don't blog myself. I have a pretty floral jelly roll that would be really nice for this project. I like the modern look of the design! Thanks for the opportunity to help. Pilkcindy@bellsouth.net

  19. Hi Diane! I saw this on Instagram and then lost it somehow. (Got distracted by something shiny or pink I suppose). I was going to let you know if you ever want a pattern tester that is pretty much pattern clueless (like a beginners pattern) I'm your gal! LOL Will be trying out your ribbon quilting sketch soon. Will be sure and share the results! :)

  21. Diane, I didn't see this until now, and I see that you have quite a few volunteers already, but if you still need a pattern tester, let me know. I'd love to try out your new pattern. =)
