Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

One of my next projects is pattern testing for Desert Bloom Quilting. Jessica at Desert Bloom created a beautiful quilt and pattern called Talavera Tile. She’s releasing the pattern in 2 sizes and was looking for pattern testers for the larger size (55″ x 73″).

(After having the pattern for a month), I spent some time today and recolored it. I have been loving batiks lately so I will be using the Prisma Dyes batiks. The fabrics have been ordered and should arrive in a little over a week, which gives me slightly less than a month to make the quilt top.

This is my re-coloring. I used Inkscape which can only color with a single color, rather than a pattern, but it gives an idea of the quilt. The fabrics below are the ones that I chose from the Artisan Batiks Prisma Dyes line.

Once the fabric arrives, expect to hear more about Talavera Tile in February.

Also, I realized after I colored it and purchased the fabric that I used Seahawks colors. I couldn’t figure out why I was loving the lime green so much… now I know.
