Over the next several issues I’m writing Test Drive for GenQ. This is one of my favorite features to write as I get to spend some time with my friends that I don’t get to see as much as I’d like. You know how it goes…everyone has something going on between work and family or other obligations. So for me this time is precious. They test, comment and we chat about quilting and life. Talk about my happy place. I’m so grateful that aef shares her home with us.

The prep work was fun…as I’ve run other Test Drives I have a good idea of questions to ask. This is key to the article and to listening in to their thoughts and then recording them for the article. Part of the prep work yesterday was doing some piecing. I pieced and pieced and pieced 2 1/2″ squares. Then because I wasn’t sure I’d have enough I pieced and pieced 5″ squares then cut them down to 2 1/2″ squares. I had more than I needed and I’m good with that more than is way better than not enough.

The more interesting part for me was…well…you’ll just have to wait for the article in GenQ.
