Q&A with Andrea Kelter

QuiltDude asked:
This is just gorgeous! I love everything about this - from the colors to the panels to the quilting to the back... The marine biologist could not have asked for a better quilt. Thanks for sharing. :-) :-) :-)
Andrea Kelter answered:
Thank you so much for your kind comments - greatly appreciate them!
Beachmom5 asked:
I am speechless. I love blue n white. I live in. SEA ISLE when I saw sea I thought you were a local. I was so hoping. I lost my house in super storm sandy n still have not been allowed to move forward with it. I live in a TRAVL TRAILER. Not complaining. But the beauty in you quilt was able to life my spirits today.. It is to die for!!!
Andrea Kelter answered:
First of all - thank you so much for your lovely comments. You have left me speechless, too! I am very sorry to hear you are still dealing with the aftermath of Sandy - and am not sure if you are a quilter or not - but if you are, I would love to send you one of the two "Sea" panels I have stashed away (they are what I used in the center of this quilt), and if I still have a Seascapes charm pack, I will include enough charms for the centres of the surrounding blocks. All you would need is some fan coral batik (that's what I used) for the borders around the charm squares, and some white fabric - and you could make one for yourself. If you'd like the fabrics (as a gift from me), please send me an e-mail to 'andrea@tidelinequilts.com', or, if you prefer - post your name and mailing address here. I'll put them into the mail right away...
