How Pattern Testing Works @Jitterywings
Step 1: I will send an email out with deadlines for upcoming patterns.
Step 2: If you would like to test a particular pattern and believe you can meet the stated deadline, please email me back immediately to let me know which one(s).
Step 3: I will select a couple of testers for each pattern that represent a variety of skills levels and let you know if you are selected or not. I will try to mix it up a bit so other testers have an opportunity.
Step 4: I will email testers the draft pattern to begin working on it.
Step 5: Prior to the deadline, testers are asked to send me their feedback on the pattern. Feedback may be provided using the Track Changes Feature on Word (preferred) or by typing detailed notes into an email to me. Feedback includes:
- Where directions are confusing
- Incorrect totals or cutting amounts
- Other thoughts about ways to improve the pattern.

Benefits of Testing with Jittery Wings
1. A FREE PDF of the final quilt pattern you test.
2. If you would like to purchase the fabric from Jittery Wings for the pattern you are testing in the amounts listed on the pattern, email me and I will work up your order with 30% OFF. I will be offering kits for upcoming patterns, and testing using a kit with a great photo is a huge benefit to me and to those considering making the pattern in the future! I want to honor your time by offering this option. Using this benefit comes with the expectation that the pattern will be completed on time and include a nice photo using the tips below. Due to my limited ability to order fabric, I will need to limit the number of testers who can purchase any one kit at 30% OFF to one.
Thank you for your interest in testing patterns for me! You help make the Jittery Wings Family work! Peace, Mitzie
Taking a Quality Quilt Photo
1. Get help! Make sure you have folks hiding behind the photo who are tall enough for the quilt to not be bunched up at the bottom. Or short enough the quilt doesn't look like it has feet. *wink*
2. Go outside. Look for fun flat walls on the sides of building in a cute little downtown or a beautiful field or forest. Fun painted walls in a city are cool too.
