Pattern Testers Wanted!

We are looking for both the accomplished seamstress and the very beginner who have sewing machines capable of machine embroidery to test our new patterns before they are officially published.

This Me Without You quilt is the current project we need testers for.

We love machine embroidery, and are happy to finally be able to offer some of our patterns in this format!

**If you are interested, please contact meagsandme@gmail.com- please say “PATTERN TESTER” in the subject line and answer the following questions:

*Name

*General sewing skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced, or years you’ve been sewing)

*Brand of machine (make/model if possible) (i.e. Bernina, Brother, Janome, etc)

 

Testers will receive embroidery files to test (and quilt top instructions) via email, and a exit survey/short questionnaire to complete once the quilt has been made up. Feedback is always welcome during the quilting process!

Testers that send the exit survey within 3 weeks of receiving the embroidery files will receive a complimentary copy of the official pattern once it is published.

Quilt Market Recap 2018

Almost 3 months late…. we’ve been (thankfully & happily) so busy!

It was our first time in Portland, and we absolutely adored everything about it, especially the cool, overcast weather- we are missing that lately!

It took us a long time to set up the booth. We always scale out our booth and have a precise plan, but for whatever reason, it just didn’t quite come together and we had to move quilts around so it looked “right”. The biggest change was moving our llama quilt so it was draped over the fantastic wheelbarrow thing we found. This led to us personally showing it off frequently, and watch everyone bust up laughing, because it is the greatest pun we’ve ever come up with:

Justin Bieber would be a fan, I think.

My favorite part about this whole quilt is the llama’s little bird friend. I mean, come ON.

We’d add a bird to everything. It’s a running joke between the two of us, so now we actively look for places to add random birds.  I like it.

But anyway, we were happy to be close to lots of fun and delicious restaurants, and we had a lot of fun playing in the city-  uber-ing around everywhere, ordering pizza at 2am, and waking up at 5am because I couldn’t sleep and somehow *not* watching the royal wedding (I don’t know how that happened either!), walking to voodoo doughnuts, which we had no idea existed in not the best part of town, but we throughly enjoyed eating 13 ridiculous doughnuts that night. Also, Portland seems like a Pepsi city, so we were missing Diet Coke a tiny bit.

We found the cutest sign company who did a lovely job making our logo come to life and it was definitely one of my favorite parts of our booth this year.

We had a lot of fun designing our quilts to coordinate with each other this year because we are naturally drawn to blues/greens and once we designed the main back wall quilt, everything else came together quickly.

The number of new quilts/patterns we did specifically for this booth was incredible (9!), and it’s sort of amazing we pulled it off. Thank you, always and continually, to our quilter who rush quilts everything for us all the time 🙏

Frolic
Frolic Retail: $16

So much floral motif this year- which means everything was juuuust the way we like it😉

This was an old pattern, but we loved it so much we re-made it in new (matching) fabrics.

Spring Morning

The best part of every market is connecting with so many amazing people. We love the energy, finding new cool things (these are our new fav find!), and laughing with each other so much that our abs hurt. We are always so overwhelmed by the sheer number of gorgeous booths and talented people.

Lancelot & Guinevere

We’ve got the cutest new patterns!

This fabric is super cute, (Lancelot & Guinevere by Rachel Erickson of Citrus & Mint for Riley Blake Designs) we wanted to do a boy & girl version, but as it turns out we couldn’t decide on just one girl quilt, so we made 3. (because why not?!)

The appliqué pieces are designed so if you’d like to make any of these little girl quilts without the princess hat, you can & they’d look awesome!

You can download these patterns here, (or ask your local quilt shop 😉)
