Pattern Tester Sign Up
Interested in pattern testing for me? Awesome!
Below is a brief description of what pattern testing a Guilty Quilty Studio pattern entails and what you can expect from me. If you would like to join my tester pool to be considered for future pattern tests, please fill out the form below.
What I expect from you:
Read all pattern directions thoroughly and mark any typos or areas where the wording is confusing.
Make the pattern according to the pattern directions by the deadline stated. Most tests will be due at minimum 4 weeks from when you receive the pattern; longer depending on the complexity of the pattern.
Photograph your finished quilt top or quilt and post at least one photo to your Instagram feed (so I can share it in the tester parade). You can post more if you like, but only one post is required.
Verify that the fabric requirements were appropriate for the size you tested.
Provide any comments or suggestions you have on the pattern
What you can expect from me:
I will provide you with a well-edited pattern with a release date set. Any pattern that gets tested will be released in a timely manner and I pre-test all my patterns myself before sending them out to testers. Testing is the final stage of my process.
I will communicate any updates to the pattern found during the testing process with you as soon as they are identified.
I will set up an Instagram group chat with all testers to provide an opportunity for you to grow your quilty community and compare notes during pattern testing.
I will feature your quilt top on both my Instagram and blog as part of the tester parade.
Currently, I am not in a position to pay my pattern testers. Instead, I have a type of loyalty program to reward reliable, valuable testers who test for me multiple times. After completing a test, you will remain in my tester pool and I will contact you about future tests unless you let me know you would like to be removed from the pool.
1st Test: You receive the finalized pattern and a designer fat quarter.
2nd Test and beyond: You receive free pantograph long arm quilting from me for your tester top or another top of equivalent size (in addition to the finalized pattern).
