Q&A with tholtz

JanSew82 asked:
Beautiful stitching!
tholtz answered:
Thanks Jan! I did have some struggles and discovered it's probably better to quilt the middle first as the fabric gets very stiff with all that thread and tends to push back agains the sewing machine arm. asked:
Great quilting!
tholtz answered:
Thank you Debbie!

Thanks Nita!
Cindy Needham asked:
What a beautiful block! I love the variety of backgrounds and texture you added...wonderful attention to detail...congratulations! tell me...did you ESS? :)
tholtz answered:
Hi Cindy, no, I did not ESS but I did most. I didn't want definition between the two pieces that make up the outter and innter points of the star, those are the only seams I didn't stitch. What would you have done?
Pam NZ asked:
