From K - Pattern Tester

Last weekend I whipped up a quick baby quilt top for a friend using a new pattern by Elizabeth Dackson of Don't Call Me Betsy. I can't share a ton with you yet as she hasn't released the pattern (coming out mid-August) but what I can tell you was that this quilt was a ton of fun to work on!

When I received the pattern, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it, and who to make this quilt for. I pulled fabric from my stash for this quilt in less than 5 minutes (definitely a record for me!). Most of these prints came from my Stash Stack Club subscription and a few are from my LQSs.

While I wait ever so impatiently to show you my finished top, I will keep stitching away. So far it's machine quilted and half bound. Next up is some yummy hand quilting work to really wrap it up.

It's a good thing I recently ordered 18 mini balls of Presencia perle cotton (size 8) from Mad About Patchwork. They arrived just in time for this project to come on a road trip with me this weekend. Let the vacation stitchery begin!


  1. Looks awesome Kelsey! Love all the colours with the Architextures background! Have fun on your road trip!

  2. Ooh - this rainbow is calling out to me! Can't wait to see the full pattern and quilt top!

  3. I just got a big pack of pearl cotton too! AND I have that bucket from Ikea... Maybe I'll keep mine in there when I get a sewing room!
