Q&A with Ladybev

Bonnie Amundsen asked:
A little blurry, but I can still see it is a beautiful quilt! Very nice back = a reversible quilt:)
Ladybev answered:
Thank you very much. Reversible is a GREAT concept! Now this one didn't use up any quilt top scraps but others I've made have & that really ties things together!
prugg asked:
I can't tell from the picture, but I assume you quilted in the ditch on the yellow/blue side. That must have been very difficult to line up with the books on the other side.
Ladybev answered:
This quilt was free motion quilted with a large meandering stitch overall. Very easy
Karen Ruehling asked:
Is this a pieced quilt or a panel of some kind. If it is pieced - wholly cow what a job. Either way - it's a beautiful quilt - especially for a reader.
Ladybev answered:
Thank you so much. I made this as a Christmas present for my daughter in 2012. The book fabric is the quilt back and the fabric of books reminded my daughter of the old English bookstore stacks. She too is an avid reader and so we decided this would make a great backing & added 2 borders. Even has bits of gold on the books. The yellow & blue quilt top is pieced in a fence rail pattern.
