Testing quilt blocks and patterns is my Sudoku

Over the past couple of years I have spent a fair bit of my quilting time testing. I have the good fortune to be on the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks testing team. The blog tour for volume 10 is happening this week. To visit the designers who are featured this year visit the Quilty Pleasures blog here 
I will never be a designer but I can check over and test work other designers have created.
This week I finished sewing a quilt top for a designer who lives in Arkansas. Some place I have never been. We met over the internet and yesterday as I was sending her the photo of the finished top and my comments we had a very interesting exchange. 
She is originally from Finland and I have visited there so I got a wonderful trip down memory lane.
The photo on today's post is one of my test blocks from Volume 10. 
All week the Sew Sisters quilt shop based in Toronto is hosting a Cross Canada Blogathon. They have us hip hopping across the country from British Columbia to Nova Scotia and today back to Alberta. What a great way to meet other Canadian bloggers. Piecefully, Joanne

  1. I think it is so cool that you get to test these blocks - you're secretly 100 steps ahead of us. I have been following (or is that hoppint) the Sew Sister Hop - love meeting our neighbors.
