Q&A with patz in suffolk

4bird2 asked:
What a wonderful job, I'm thinking you must be so proud to have completed all of the blocks. What an adventure. I'm looking forward to seeing the purples come alive together. Hang in there. Thank you so much for sharing.
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you. Still plenty more to be done, and I hear all sorts of other prljects calling me - I must be careful not to spoil it by trying to finish it too quickly!
desna asked:
Congratulations pat you are a star ****** how brilliant it must be to have finished the last one. Do you reccommend doing them separately or do you wish you had made the top up first... this is my dilema before I start.... well one of them I am still practising fmq on a plain piece of fabric.
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you, Desna! I'm so pleased that I opted for the "quilt as you go" methos as I think I may hve given up on the FMQ if I'd had to wrestle a bit quilt around. I've done some very basic vermicelli quilting on a big quilt before, which was okay, but with all the intricate patters I really did need to manouevre the small blocks around. This is probably because I seem only to be able to sew in one direction - lots more practice needed!
3patch asked:
Wonderful! It is so different than most of the projects here.
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you - it's amazing how we've all been doing the same thing and how we've all made the quilts our own just by using different fabrics and colours!
dohewston10265 asked:
Great quilting - I've already stitched all my blocks together (thanks to a very wet summer in Wales) so I shall have a lot of fun tackling the quilting in one big piece! I' m soaking up the sun in New Zealand at present, so sewing has to wait!
patz in suffolk answered:
Good for you - enjoy that sun as there ain't too much here at the moment! (Raining again!)
Pam NZ asked:
Wahoooo Patricia! Well done you! This one is just gorgeous... very!
patz in suffolk answered:
Thank you - still quite a lot more to be done before I can rest on any laurels (and still lots of chances to spoil it too!) I really must remeber the old saying, "More haste, less speed"!
