Q&A with Ladymax

Davesmom asked:
I like the color of this quilt. The stringy look is the material or did you embroder it? It has a nice look anyhow. You are so thrifty!! Wish I was so well organized!!
Ladymax answered:
The stringy look is in the fabric. It is actually a map of the London England transportation systems. I love the colours also. Thanks.
Pepper Cory asked:
Love that you combined knowledge from two courses to produce this quilt. Great contemporary look--can't wait to see your next project!
Ladymax answered:
Thank you. I always seem to have pieces left over when I complete a quilt. Probably because my quilts are mainly baby size, so I am following your ideas and making use of these pieces. I now use all left over pieces and also sew my batting pieces together.
Meghan OConnor asked:
Beautiful! I love how the stringy look reminds me of a map of the London Underground. Very contemporary.
Ladymax answered:
Many thanks.
JaneAnn asked:
