Q&A with Pam NZ

Darns asked:
Oh, what fun with stencils! Looks great! Finn should be extremely pleased. But, wait, have you made Sassy a quilt? I hope she isn't feeling neglected - -
Pam NZ answered:
Thanks Darns... LOL Sassy's is a work in progress... hopefully be finished in time to go in time for Santa Paws to give her ;-) And what is Master Wallace getting for Xmas we wonder???
Kati R asked:
Finn the lucky pup! Your quilting looks fantastic, first I thought it was a baby quilt, LOL!
Pam NZ answered:
LOL I think it would make a lovely 2 legged baby quilt too!
Yiya Cucuy asked:
This is really cute Pam. I zoomed in the picture for a while and was admiring the quilting when I wondered if you had used stencils - which I was going to ask about in my comment. Then I closed that big zoom and saw the stencils, hehe... I know, silly. Great job! :)
Pam NZ answered:
Ha ha, we all do that... thanks!
Yiya Cucuy asked:
I really like the quilting! Just wondering... I've never used stencils before; how did you mark it, with a chalk pencil or with a marker?
Pam NZ answered:
Hey if you've never used stencils before, think about taking Cindy's Design it, Quilt it class... she covers using stencils, including only bits of them as a base. I marked with a water erasable pen and a chaco liner. I really want to treat myself to a mechanical chalk pen tho!
patz in suffolk asked:
Clever you - and lucky Finn! I haven't used stencils yet, despite having bought one a long time ago - at the time I hadn't got the idea of doing curves, but it somehow didn't look the same with angles when I attempted to try it out! This is lovely.
Pam NZ answered:
Thanks Patricia... my hands and brain aren't too well connected at the mo, so using stencils gives my hands direction without the thinking LOL. Also didn't want to heavily quilt it... and if I did it freehand I know it would end up that way! Love stencils now, thanks to Cindy!
