Successful Pattern Test!

Jo Butterfield graciously offered to test my pattern Plus Dash (see post below).
She provided excellent feedback which enabled me to make one small correction. I've edited the instructions below accordingly.

Here's Jo's version. She writes,  "I chose to do mine in a neutral colour for a cot quilt size.... It was a great pattern. Very easy to follow. And yes, the best part was, it was QUICK, LARGE BLOCKS and EASY.  Jan gives you directions for a variety of sizes. The blocks measure 14" so they go together very quickly. The instructions are easy to follow.... I did have a few fat 1/8ths in Browns so I used them instead of fat 1/4s. I didn't have any trouble with not enough fabric.... I am very impressed with this pattern as I can see how it would adapt to using up scraps or a feature fabric instead of the background. I will be doing this pattern again."

She also mentioned that "the best part was there wasn't really any seams to match to make all those crosses."

Thank you, Jo, for testing my pattern and for sharing your positive experience with it.


  1. Isn't it wonderful to know someone understood all your directions? I always worry about that when writing a tutorial. Hers looks great too.

  2. Yay - that was done quickly and how great to have feedback already! I do like this pattern and love getting to see it in different colors.

  3. Yes, I did love making it.... Thanks for the pattern

  4. I found your blog because of Jo's post. I LOVE your pattern design. GORGEOUS!
