What you will need

  • Cottons
  • Acrylic paint
  • poly cotton batt

Q&A with terry.mcc935257

Shari Keefe asked:
wow, what a fun design! Obviously you are a good quilter
terry.mcc935257 answered:
Thanks Shari. It was a fun project and my first quilted on my home machine after taking Ann's class.
Dena_LivinH20 asked:
Very nice! How does it feel to get your first DSM quilt completed? Did the experience match your expectations?
terry.mcc935257 answered:
It always feels good to finish a project...but it did take longer than I imagined. I am working on a new design to do in sections...sometime...
Danegirl asked:
I absolutely love the whimsy in this quilt! I would have loved to see your "building" process :-)
terry.mcc935257 answered:
This was built in strips about 18" long of varying heights with the "book" pieces added randomly to the background strips, seamed into a "loop" then sliced open (white on both sides) and pressed. They were then stacked and trimmed to 16 " and vertical units joined...Lots of precutting but easy to assemble.
Donna Estes asked:
Really precious! Is the cat appliqued?
terry.mcc935257 answered:
Yes. The cat is appliqued. It was a "last minute" decision to perch the kitty on the precarious stack of "books" reaching for the butterfly. Thanks for your comment.
