Q&A with Joana Oliveira

ndlz1 asked:
Que tal Joana? Happy to see a new block completed. I only think that the 'star' portion s a little lost by the print next to it. Perhaps the light blue print would've stood out. What is your take after you completed it?
Joana Oliveira answered:
Ol, ndlz! Yes, of course you are right. Between all that cutting and sewing, I lost most of the white portion in one of the prints and with it most of the contrast. Even though, I'm quite happy with this block. I never thought I could make anything like that.
Columbus Kate asked:
I liked your first block, and enjoy this one, too. It is difficult to find the right contract when working with such lively prints.
Joana Oliveira answered:
Yes, it is Kate... very difficult!
Surfside6 asked:
I thought all your prints were great. I'm following you so I can see the finished project. Can't decide which one I like the best....yet
Joana Oliveira answered:
I don't know if it will be very pretty in the end, but it will certainly be colourful :-)
