Q&A with Laural Byrd

Pamillia asked:
Wonderful. The osnaburg works so very well in your project, its adds so very much texture to your creation. I like the colors you chose & your quilting really sets it off. Well done. Thank you for sharing.
Laural Byrd answered:
I fell in love with osnaburg during this small project. I am heading out to add it to my permanent stock of sashing and backing material in my stash. Thank you for your sweet comments. I always count on your encouragement!
Pamillia asked:
Dear ellebeesquilts, try some of the other colors also. They are also great in the middle of a rag quilt. They put a lovely texture to it after it is washed. Have fun shopping. :-)
Laural Byrd answered:
Thank you for the recommendation to try some other colors. Is there a place / store you recommend that carries colors? I have only found natural.
