Q&A with Darns

desna asked:
Wow! Darns this is amazing... I can only dream of quilting like this. So beautiful and delicate, LOVE it. Happy new year:)
Darns answered:
Thanks, desna! This was a fun project! Happy New Year to you, too!
Mama Von asked:
Well done! Beautiful work!
Darns answered:
Thank you!
QuiltDude asked:
Wow, wow, and WOW! again. This is gorgeous. So much little detail. The colors are spot on, the quilting is perfect. You just put me to shame, Darns! I just might try and make this, though it won't compare to your work of art. Congrats, and Cheers!
Darns answered:
Thanks so much, QuiltDude! I am having fun trying all kinds of quilting. This was the first real crosshatching & I found I had to mark the lines - just not confident enough to do without the lines.
QuiltDude asked:
... and even the machine stitched binding looks great!
Darns answered:
You know me - I won't hand stitch unless I really have to! I figure that's why there is a blanket stitch on the machine!
Pam NZ asked:
Ooooh love this one Darns! Its on my list to do too! Beautiful FMQ'g... love the detail you've achieved... obviously fun to do something on a smaller scale... you totally rocked this one girl!
Darns answered:
Thanks a lot, Pam! I've had a lot of fun with that Quick Curve ruler! I'm giving this one to my brother & SIL - hoping that I got the colors close to what they painted their living/dining room.
