Frames, a new quilt pattern I have been testing

I was quiet last week, right?  Well,  I have been chosen as a pattern tester for Aria Lane patterns, owned by Alyssa Lichner of Pile O Fabric (www.pileofabric.com).  Last week I got the privilege of testing one of her new patterns, Frames.  It is being published and is now available as a PDF so Alyssa said it was okay for us testers to post our pictures.  It was a lot of fun to do the testing, and she said I even had some helpful things to say! So, TADA, here is my version of Frames:

Frames by Megan Nichols from Aria Lane patterns

I made it with a couple of jelly rolls of Simply Color Ombre and Kona White..

I love how the Ombre comes out in the Frame, and gives it a depth that would not happen if I used a plain colors.  I was wondering how Frames would look in bright prints as the frames, well maybe one of the other testers did that.  

And of course, I only use 50# Aurifil 2025 for piecing.  It really is the best!


The back is really fun too, but you have to wait until tomorrow to see that!

love always, k
