Q&A with Sue P.

CanadianQuilter asked:
Great stuff. I love this
Sue P. answered:
Thanks!
JulieAnne asked:
Love it! Is this raw edge applique? Also wondering what Magazine did you get this pattern from? I think I may have it! Looks familiar. Thanks for sharing! :o)
Sue P. answered:
Yes, it is raw edge, I did straight stitch around the edges of the circles as part of the quilting, but no zig zag or satin stitch, since it's strictly a wall quilt and won't be washed much. If you follow the link above, it should tell you the magazine. At one time, the pattern and (minimal) directions were on-line, but they're not anymore. (You could easily wing it just from the illustration.

Really fun! I love circles and the color transitions beautifully.
Sue P. answered:
Thanks! I changed colors in the pattern slightly, because it was too blue for my daughter.
