“October Sky” – Pattern Testing for Esther from Ipatchandquilt

Last week I tested a wonderful foundation paper piecing pattern for Esther from ipatchandquilt. I was impressed – the pattern is so detailed, with different options to make the block centre and different block sizes. In addition the pattern comes with different colouring suggestions and colouring sheets to find your personal block design. I enjoyed the testing so much… and so I loved what came out. Thank you Esther!

Beside some colouring suggestions Esther gave wonderful colouring pages with the pattern to find the best design.
