Q&A with Darns

mo.sews asked:
these are sweey Darns! That stripe fabric on your Ohio Star really sets off the fussy cut center! Good job! Love your fabric choices!
Darns answered:
Thanks, mo, I just found that stripe fabric - might have to redo some of the blocks so I can have more of it in the quilt.
Pam NZ asked:
Nice one Darns... love your take on the Ohio Star. I agree with Mo, the bright stripes really do give your centre flower some extra zing! Your double star has got the pop factor too, well done!
Darns answered:
Thank you, Pam!
NanaJeanFL asked:
These are beautiful Darns! Especially like your Ohio Star. Everything is perfect!
Darns answered:

jillp asked:
Before I enlarged your squares they all look like they have some kind texture to them. Lovely! Your quilt is so cheery!
Darns answered:
Thanks, jillp, these bright colors are kind of a departure for me but I'm really liking them & keep thinking about lime green, bright yellow, hot pink, etc. - might have to do another bright colored quilt
Carolyn Sew asked:
I could see a beautiful quilt done in your first Ohio Star block--quite pretty!
Darns answered:
Thank you, Carolyn, hopefully I'll have enough of these fabrics left over to make a couple of small quilts for local women's shelters because I think the colors are fun.
