Q&A with Dfue1999

Meredith K asked:
WOW & AWESOME!!!!! CONGRATS! Interesting b/c before I even read your description I did a close up on the face & noticed how you got the "shading" or definition was through different values of fabric & I thought that was so cool!! I love Day of the Dead motifs & symbolism & this is wonderful!

I took a class by Grace Errea and she teaches an awesome and simple technique. My quilts are based on photos and she teaches how to create the pattern and assign values. Highly recommend her class and book.

Hey, Color Kitten! Your work is fabulous: color, texture, composition, and quilting. The expert mix of classic quilt motif with contemporary technique is a subtle and sublime surprise, inviting viewer to linger and explore intricacies! I love the dimensional braids trailing off the plane and moving freely. Your work continues to inspire and motivate me.
