Q&A with Cassie_baby

NanaJeanFL asked:
Love both your blocks. When I tally up all those hexis to make the stars it makes my hands ache, not to mention I think I'd get a headache. Very creative!
Cassie_baby answered:
Thank you. I am really happy with how it turned out. I'll never do it again.
oldglory44 asked:
It looks like hexies ARE your thing. Both blocks are wonderful. The stars & stripes block is the most creative block yet. I love it.
Cassie_baby answered:
Thanks. I really love your confetti quilt. I can't imagine how many hours you must have in that quilt.
Pat Sloan asked:
super clever! Are all your blocks patriotic? i just posted my Apr optioons
Cassie_baby answered:
My quilt is red, white and blue.
JanaJ asked:
These are stunning. You are so creative. I love the stars that form from the placement of your hexagons. Do you have a trick for lining them up so accurately?
Cassie_baby answered:
I basted all the points together. Then I used a ton of pins. After I posted I noticed the middle hex on the top row was crooked. So I undid that one and straightened up. I knew it would drive me crazy.
RuthM asked:
Absolutely love your hexagon flag. Is the white star made using diamonds, like the hexagons? Or is it one piece of white fabric behind the hexagons? Just need to make this one. Thanks for sharing.
Cassie_baby answered:
It is a solid piece of white behind the hexagons.
