Q&A with Allie Aller

Seri asked:
it's beautiful. fun to see how the different laces work so well together.
Allie Aller answered:
Thank you! I loved making this quilt!
Wiseass asked:
This looks so pretty! How do you take your eyes off of it to move on to another project? Also, how did you back it? And did you quilt the top? I want to make one two but it looks really tough to make. Your is so pretty but daunting to make.
Allie Aller answered:
I used a real quilt bat (Quilter's Dream) and backed it with cotton fabric. It IS a functional quilt, after all. I quilted in the ditch along the sashing strips and between the blocks is all. Not daunting....fun!
