Q&A with Loonwatcher

sheilamoor148597 asked:
Would love to try to make this one. What pattern did you use. I am a newbie. Love this!
Loonwatcher answered:
Sheila, This is a disappearing 9 patch (D9P) that I learned in Quilting Quickly I. Then I just added coordinating borders until the quilt was the size I wanted.
CindyP-H asked:
Great job! I love Garden Song, and have made several projects from that fabric line. I know you kept adding borders until it was the size you wanted, but how big did the quilt end up being?
Loonwatcher answered:
Thanks for your comments. The lap quilt measures about 48"x60".
Doe Harden asked:
This is very impressive for a first quilt! I have been working at quilting for a few years now but am still considering QQ1 & 2 m have hay hold up is that I don't have high speed internet, the prices are affordable now. Your quilt has inspired me to do the research I need to find out details. THANK YOU! Your work is something to be very proud of AND continue! I wanna see more from you! Am following you!
