"Mix It Up!!!"

Last week I received a lovely email from
asking if I could Pattern test a block I had admired on her blog.
Of course I would and thank you for the opportunity Kelli   :)
Here is my experience with her new pattern
Pattern and instructions printed.

Pattern cut and all the pieces are clearly labelled on the pattern.

I then prepared the pieces.
Super quick with a fabric Glue Pen.

I laid them all out and I was ready to go
I even incorporated a selvage :)
I then sat down and hand stitched all the pieces together and
ended up with this ... WOW, I love how this has come together.
I can see many more being made in many different colours.

I would love a real Aqua KitchenAid but I can't see one coming to live with
me anytime soon so maybe I could make myself one instead :)
My verdict
The pattern is very well written and easy to understand.
The block came together very well and with no troubles
and I am super happy with the end result.
If you would like to have a go at Kelli's new pattern
she has it listed over on Craftsy for $2.50 so go grab yours now
and support Kelli's first pattern release :o)
Thank you again Kelli for allowing me to test your pattern.
I will be turning my block into an oven mitt very soon.
hugs, Sharon
