Q&A with SSimpson

NanaJeanFL asked:
What a creative way to use your beautiful blocks SSimpson's! Nice work. Look forward to seeing the rest and do post pics of the FMQ!
SSimpson answered:
I forgot to photograph the free motion quilting before taking them to my daughter last weekend. She is giving them as gifts to family friends who live near her. Will take photos on the next one. On the basket quilt I did echo quilting around the flowers and basket. On the others I used small and medium meandering on the sashings and solid strips but didn't do additional quilting on the HST border on the flying geese/9patch quilt. Next time I will
Vellegazelle asked:
Gosh, you're prolific! By the time I get home from work, I'm usually too tired to make it to my craft room, so I only sew on weekends. Your colors are always so pretty.
SSimpson answered:
Thanks. . .being retired helps. I have a big family and after they saw the first quilt they were all asking for one, So I'm working to get them all done. My daughters are at the age where they want these baby quilts for all their friends. I'm going to teach them to do it themselves every chance I get. Small town, not much to do, lots of fabric passed down, so I sew. I love retirement and quilting is a fantastic quilting outlet. Thanks for your comment.
