Q&A with sewmom204
Leah Day asked:
Awesome job quilting! I love that you shot a picture of the back so you can really see all those designs so clearly. Great job!
Leah you did a great job teaching this class. I've gained so much confidence in my FMQ'ing ability now, and the best part was how to set up our machine to accomplish smooth and easy and problem free motion to be able to free motion quilt. Get tips throughout the course and always available when I had a question or was just hesitant about trying one of the patterns. I will be forever grateful that you have taken my quilting skills to a higher level. Thank you also to the other members of this course. Their feedback has been encouraging and very helpful. It's nice to know that others have the same problems you do and we are able to work through them together. I felt like I was part of a quilting group just as if we were all there in person working on our projects. I will be taking other courses for sure.
Daniel Becker asked:
What shade of Green did you use? (I think I have a very close shade). I totally love this quilt sampler done mostly in green, including all the borders, binding, etc., along with your choice of accent colors. It was this version of this sampler quilt that made me sign up for this class!. Making green the predominate color makes such an impact visually along your fantastic quilting. This is one of my favorites quilts I have seen in a long time. Thank you for inspiring me to start a new project and thank you for sharing your wonderful and beautiful quilt.
Daniel, thank you for your inquiry and lovely comments of my quilt. That was 5 years ago and I still have pieces of that fabric around. It was the brightest lime green cotton fabric I could find at Walmart. The thread I used to quilt it, I bought from Hancocks,( who are out of business now) it's Coats and Clark Cotton Covered quilting and piecing 35wt. color #6840 and that matched perfect so you may want to hold a spool of that while you shop and see what color fabric would match. Sorry not much help with that. I do have 2 boxes of 3 spools each of that left over that if you decide to use that color I can mail you to have, no charge can even slip in a piece of that fabric so you can check the color. I did donate that quilt to the local BreastCa society here in town for an auction to raise funds. It went to a very beautiful woman that loves it and is well and healthy today. I loved this class and I FMQ every chance I get now without fear. Anything I can do, please let me know. Happy Stitching.
Daniel Becker asked:
Not sure how to reply to your comment, but here goes. I appreciate your generous offer, but I have found a thread that matches perfectly, but thank you for your kind gesture. I also enjoyed the story behind your quilt. I will be posting the first two blocks I completed so far, showing the green and orange I will be using for the entire quilt. I have more orange fabric I have yet to use, mostly Fossil Fern and numerous batiks. I hope u don't mind but I am trying to follow the same values you used with the rosey/magenta accent colors your chose. Again thank you for sharing.
no problem about following my color values for your quilt. I didn't really think much about it when I was creating mine, they were all FQ's and just a scrappy method to it, I just had fun with it. I suggest you do too, whatever you decide it will be unique and I'm sure it will be beautiful and you will be very proud of it. I will keep my eye on here to see your pictures and look forward to the picture when it is completed. Happy Quilting!
