Q&A with theoldcrow

Tanya W. asked:
WOW! This is really quite awesome! You go girl!
theoldcrow answered:
Thanks. It will be a monster to quilt though. It covered my entire area rug. I had to move the furniture to get it all on the floor flat. LOL
Emafish asked:
This quilt is to much fun! Did you enjoy doing a mystery quilt? I think I would have control issues not knowing how it was going to turn out.
theoldcrow answered:
I did enjoy making it. I never tried to figure the layout-ever. But, what I did find myself doing was playing with the pieces out of curiosity, not with intent to figure out how they would be placed for the mystery. I love Bonnie Hunter's blog. She is amazing with scrap quilt ideas. And so many are free!!! Yes...free. I like free. lol
Trix asked:
Incredible quilt. I don't know that I would ever have the patience to do so many little pieces - good job!
theoldcrow answered:
it goes quickly...and in sections, so it was never boring, or overwhelming
LMcrafting asked:
Looks great! I'm still piecing the blocks for this one. I like the way you used the dark small squares realy enhances the design.
theoldcrow answered:
did you finish your quilt?
Candace in Fl asked:
Yours is lovely. I'm quilting mine now, just my usual meander, but anxious to get it finished and on the bed.
theoldcrow answered:
I have one small lap size in my frame--after that I will be meandering my way down "Easy Street" too. Mine will hit the living room floor, as i made it for the grand babies to use. Very few of my quilts are NOT used.
