Meet Cross Track Pattern Tester: Sarah of @riverroequilts


I am so excited to introduce you to all of my amazing quilters that tested Cross Track. This meant the world to me to see these quilts come to life as this was my very first pattern to write. Thanks to Quilter's Candy Quilt Pattern Writing Course. It is so incredible to see something I designed come to life and how each one has a totally different feel. I have enjoyed getting to know each one of these talented testers and would love for you to get to know them as well. Even better get to see the amazing quilts they created.

Sarah of @riverroequilts pattern tested a Throw size of Cross Track. I love that Sarah used black as the darkest of the ombre colors and the raspberry color palette. It gives this quilt such great contrast from the white background. Check out Sarah on Instagram here.

Where do you live? I live in a small town near St. Louis, MO.

How long have you been quilting? Regularly for a little over a year, but I learned to sew in 2011 and I really enjoyed working with knits!

Why do you pattern test? love to edit and I love to sew, so testing just makes sense. Plus, it gives me an excuse to sew - telling my husband, "I've got a quilt due to a pattern writer - sorry I can't do the dishes right now!" ;) Joking aside... quilting is how I recharge, it's my unicorn space! Often times it's easy to say to ourselves, "I'll quilt later, I need to do XYZ for work or my family" but then it gets pushed to the back burner. So pattern testing means that quilting remains a priority and goes on my to do list with everything else. Who doesn't love putting fun stuff on their to-do list?! :P

What do you love about Cross Track? I love the unique design and it's construction! I just LOVE this pattern - it's right up there as one of my top five favorite quilts I've ever made! <3

What was your inspiration or colors used for Cross Track? I made this quilt for a little girl who loves pink!
