Q&A with scol409

Arlene C asked:
Very interesting and unique quilt. The recipients will be so pleased. Isn't it fun trying to use the variety of fabrics in a stash!!! I am also a scrap saver and it is fun trying to find uses for them.
scol409 answered:
I usually use strips 1 1/2 inches wide which I prefer but I had a bunch of strips left over that were 2 1/2 so I tried this. That's what I love about quilting - no one can say that you are 'wrong' because it is whatever it is - whatever you make it to be!
patz in suffolk asked:
That really has impact - the contrast between the white and the colours has great sharpness and I'm sure whoever ends up with this quilt will be absolutely "over the moon" with it!

Fingers crossed! I always like my quilts to go to a good home. Is that the true sign of a quilter?!!
