Q&A with bellabarbara

everlastindaisy asked:
You have done really well.Thanks for showing this.
bellabarbara answered:
Thank you so much...I am learning so much from everyone here!
Deb Cavanaugh asked:
Two learning curves at once. Wow, you did great.
bellabarbara answered:
Thank is so cool to be part of such a great community and such a cool class!
Cindy Needham asked:
I am VERY impressed! First time...really??? If you were taking one of my Beginning Machine Quilting workshops the other students would have thrown you out on your heels! And you did feathers and pearls...seriously beautiful first time job. Congratulations!
bellabarbara answered:
Yes...but I have done so much by hand and am an artist by trade, draw ALL the time, so a lot just clicked in immediately for me. Your comments about muscle memory really applied here. I've been drawing my own quilting designs for years, and with the new sewing machine and your class, all has fallen into place. Now to find my speed and wait for my thread shipment from Superior threads....
Darns asked:
WOW! This looks great! You make me want to try this type of dense heirloom quilting.
bellabarbara answered:
Thank you so much...I've been doing this type of quilting by hand for years, and this is going to be so much fun, and a chance to get to some projects that have been on hold in the stash pile!
Cindy Needham asked:
Yes I DO extended workshops in Rancho Cordova which is just outside of Sacramento. I hold Design, Beginners and Linen Wholecloth Quilts. Check out the workshops section of my website!
