Q&A with Pamillia

andylou asked:
I, too, have made a crayone quilt and also have started the cat pattern. Yes, it takes a while, but definitely worth it. I just "colored" and "hand-embroidered" in the evening in the living room while watching TV with hubby. Just take your time and enjoy the process. I hadn't thought about Batiks with these blocks, but I like yours a lot. My quilt won't have the memories that yours does. The memories are so special.
Pamillia answered:
Dear andylou, thank you for sharing. You will have sharing that time w/ your honey. I really enjoyed the embroidery. But then, I enjoyed it all.
