Block Flower and a Giveaway!

Some of you know about my love of pattern testing.
I think it's the editor in me...probably a teacher thing.

I've met some lovely folk online, so when Jess over at The Elven Garden asked if anyone was interested in pattern testing, my hand shot up with an "OOOOO..OOOO..PICK ME!!!" response.

Thankfully, she did.

Jess's patterns are lovely.  Not only does she give great directions, she's got lots of pictures!
She's just released The Block Flower pattern.

It's available on craftsy.  Pop on over to Jess's if you want to see the other testers' versions.

Mine is headed to join the other Wellspring donations this weekend.  It's not my usual color palette, but I wanted to match the house color suggestions.  I like that it's kind of soft and calm.  I hope the woman who sleeps under it feel loved.

Block Star quilt, for Wellspring

It's kind of hard to see...but I did an orange peel in the outline of each flower.

Jess has given me a copy of her pattern to give away.  If you read this far down, there aren't any hoops.  Just leave me a comment.  Feel free to suggest which project on my list I should attack next.

Edit:  I'll pick a winner Sunday night, closing entries at 9pm EST.
