Meet the Arcade Quarters Testing Team

I was so fortunate to have a group of passionate, creative people to bring Arcade Quarters to life. If you're looking for some inspiration to make your own Arcade Quarters quilt, take a look at the pictures these wonderful creatives have shared - each of them added their own flair and flavor to the pattern, and there's a little something for everyone.

As someone who started out testing patterns for others, this is the most exciting and rewarding part for me. I love the camaraderie and connections that a test team bring to the process. These people have been my cheerleaders (and sometimes my critics) and have given their time, creative energy, and enthusiasm to the pattern exactly when I need it most. Without their input and support (and gorgeous quilts) I would be lost!

Still need a copy of the Arcade Quarters pattern?


Meet June!

June is a fellow Garden State quilter who shares a love for a great rainbow (she collects Alison Glass fabrics!). She put together this fun and funky rainbow top based on the colors in the backing fabric she chose, and used a great pair of coordinating prints to soften the stripes and give her quilt a nice cozy vibe. She also added an extra row to the throw size to make a quilt that will be perfect for snuggling under!

You can follow June and see more of her work here: @june.lum2020


Meet Ashelyn!

Ashelyn is a Utah-based maker who creates gorgeous products from repurposed vintage quilts while also raising 5 tiny humans (she's seriously a superhero). She brought her self-proclaimed "80s mall vibes" to play, and honestly if any mall I was brought to looked even half as gorgeous as her quilt turned out, I don't remember it!

Meet Mandy!

Mandy is the kind of person I immediately knew I wanted to be friends with - she's a self-proclaimed night owl who loves video games. She also has a great eye for color, and every time I see her fabric pool I immediately think of Saved by the Bell (which is totally a good thing). Using the extra fabric she had from her pull, she even added an extra row to the bottom of the throw size to make sure her toes would stay warm (something that I am assured is a problem for tall people!).

Meet Karen!

When Karen and I first started talking about the fabric she might use, she told me that she was thinking pink, and my "Yesss!" was happy enough that it sounded like I'd won something. I love a pink quilt, but never manage to make one that I love - Karen delivered! Her fun pink quilt gives me 90's mom ski jacket (a Google search for "90s mom ski jacket" is totally worth your time), and it makes me so happy!

Meet Lisa!

Lisa is a pattern testing unicorn - every pattern designer's dream: she volunteered to make a Queen sized quilt in the 4 week testing window AND she made it is this calm, masculine blue colorway that feels like it belongs in a cabin by a beach somewhere. She also makes custom quilts and offers pattern proofreading, technical editing, and ghostwriting services, so she's exactly the kind of friend you want in your corner when you're releasing your first pattern!

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank each of these talented people for sharing their time and creative energy with me!
