Q&A with mckennalinn

Peggy Martin asked:
What a great design!! When I saw your quilt, I wondered if some of the blocks were from your previous project - what a great way to use them! Your border and setting are both very nicely done - just love it!
mckennalinn answered:
Can't tell you how many alternate borders i went through on this one, and finally decided to be fearless with yellow!
4bird2 asked:
I've had my eye on this pattern for a long time. This is amazing to me. I love the color combination and the batiks, I think the batiks give the quilt a very natural look.
mckennalinn answered:
Thank you. I love the Mariner's Compass pattern, too, have done a few of them this past year. But Peggy's strip-foundation method makes it so much easier to make the blocks! As for the batiks, yes, I'm a batik girl :-)
