Q&A with VivianNB

AnnJones asked:
I love the various block designs and your colors!
VivianNB answered:
Thank you! Kaye's design has allowed me to commemorate all the CW projects I've done to date. It was great to mine all the stash remains to use in this quilt!
Becky R from IL asked:
Very nice. Was it hard to add all of the different elements in the middle? I just sashed the block
VivianNB answered:
Thank you and the answer to that is No and Sort of! When my bocks were accurately sized, following Ms. England's instructions for the filler units meant they worked right in smoothly since they are all in the compatible proportions to the block sizes. That said, I will admit to needing to do some fudging or adding additional filler strips or creating "uniquely sized" filler units or sashing when my blocks did not finish to the size they were supposed to be (due to quilter error not pattern error). However, for me that just added to the fun and allowed me to use up even more scraps!
