Q&A with QuiltyJan

Surfside6 asked:
Thank you for saving this lost treasure and giving it a new spin. It looks wonderful.
QuiltyJan answered:
Thank you but I was thankful that I saw the blocks in their pitiful state and let them be something special to me.
Cindrelly asked:
That looks great, mother in law had an old quilt that was in that design. She told me it belonged to her grandmother. I always wanted it but since she's my ex mother in law it never happened. Now thanks to you I'm going to try to make my own. Thank you
QuiltyJan answered:
I had never made it a priority to make one either. Then these showed up in our charity quilt supply booth, I took them to redo them to sell then fell in love with them and had to buy the quilt back. It is unfortunate that you did not have the antique ones but maybe better memories this way.
Cindy Overbaugh asked:
How cute is this???
QuiltyJan answered:
It is a warm cozy quilt I think although hanging on my wall I guess I don' t cuddle with it! I probably would never have made had the blocks not landed in my lap and for that I am grateful.
