Pattern Testing Becomes NewFO

I had the pleasure and honor of testing Sue Abrey's soon to be released Wimbledon Squares quilt pattern. My version is a bit smaller - an over-sized lap - named Lavender Blue Dilly Dilly. The quilter has not yet gotten her hands on my flimsy (see the lavender Ms Cat has her back feet on? - well that is the backing to be). This quilt is for my niece, Bailey.

Sue's pattern went together like a dream. I had quite a fun time with this! And, she told me I could share the quilt just in time to link to Barbara's NewFO Challenge for the month. Ms Cat was wondering what I was going to show because her knows this is the only thing I worked on the past month. Here are outside pictures (sans the naughty cat!) of  Lavender Blue Dilly Dilly .....









Okay, okay ... so there is a bit of picture overload. The pattern testing was very new to me. I had a blast. Thank you, Sue, for letting me participate.

Ms Kitty is adorable, and the quilt is nice too. A hard bunch of blocks to arrange, but darks are distributed nicely.

Hi Donna, thanks for visiting my blog Bits 'n Bobs. I just love your quilt. It must be a buzz to do a pattern test.

So HRH Sue must've shared that I sang Lavendar Blue Dilly Dilly by email when she sent me the sneak peek of your quilt! Pattern testing has been a fun experience hasn't it?!?!
