Pattern Proofing

17 comments
I'm photographing and writing instructions for my row-by-row quilt. I wanted to show that the pattern could be used with different fabrics and in a smaller sized project like a wall hanging. So I'm making each block again and writing instructions as I go. It is always amazing to me how using different fabric makes such a huge difference.

Busy Busy.

I love these blocks! So cute with the rick rack!
I am making my first attempt at writing directions. A friend of mine asked me to teach her to quilt. It is amazing how hard it is to write out things that we tend to do automatically!

You are so right. I'm always amazed at how different fabrics change and alter the looks of a block. Love what you are doing. Looking forward to seeing the pattern.

Being new to quilting I appreciate all the good walk though. I read each one even if I don't plan to make the item just to learn from those of you that are experienced.

Cute blocks. Writing pattern directions are difficult. I wrote one for a dresden quilt I designed so that I could teach a class.
Good luck.

These blocks are too cute! You are so right about fabric choices. I used to turn away from some patterns because I didn't like the fabrics they used in the example but now I try to look at the pattern & if I love it, try to vision it with my fav fabrics.
