Pattern Testers

I'm currently looking for quilters and sewers who enjoy using Paper Piecing (or want to learn!) to test my patterns before they are released for sale.

If you are interested in becoming a Pattern Tester for Kohatu Patterns please email and let me know why you would like to become a pattern tester and what quilting experience you have. Send me a photo of a pattern you have completed and let me know what you liked and disliked about it!

As a Pattern tester, with your permission, your photos may be featured on this Blog and in my stores. You will get access to FREE paper piece patterns and will get to see what I am working on before anyone else!

Big Vehicle Construction Quilt

Welcome to Kohatu Patterns!

As many of my email subscribers will already know, for the past year I have been working on a quilt for my son, which is inspired by the roadworks going on nearby.
Well, the good news is that it's finally finished!

This Quilt has utilized a number of Patterns including the Construction Vehicle Pack, Steam/Road Roller, Front End Loader, and Grader Patterns. The Border fabric I used was Richard Neuman's 'Diggers and Dozers' by Clothworks. I have been unable to find this fabric again since however, has some pretty awesome fabrics from independent designers which would work just as well.
