Pattern proof reading... anyone?

Does anyone have time to read over a pattern for me over the next few days? I've just finished the "Fussy Fairytales" quilt and pattern and am also working on another one (yet to be revealed). I just need a couple of people to read over the pattern to make sure it makes sense and give me some honest feedback. I will, ofcourse, give the pattern proof-readers a copy of the final pattern/s once finished.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your fantastic response. I really appreciate it! Unfortunately I wont need all of you to proof read this time, but I'll keep this list as a reference for the future. I always have patterns brewing :)

And, what's a post without a picture...


My sister, Amelia and I had a fun sewing weekend making these cushions for Toni and Carli to say thanks for all their hard work on the Queensland Flood Appeal. What they achieved and inspired in others was truly amazing!

It was all Amelia's idea. She is such a generous and thoughtful sister and friend. She somehow managed to snag some of Saffron Craig's yet to be released "Magical Lands" fabric - isn't it stunning (I've just had word that Magical Lands is released!!) - and Amelia taught me how to make cushions (they're really easy!). She also took lots of photos of me hand quilting so I could finally post a tutorial outlining how I do it. Hopefully that's up next.

  2. You probably have enough people but if not I would love to proof read and test out patterns :) I don't have any of the fairy tales fabric but do have something that would be perfect for that quilt!
