Q&A with Arlene C

MsQuilty asked:
Did you watch thiis on YoouTube (Missouriii Quilt Company)? If so, I saw that too! I'm planning to make one of these myself. Right now I'm finishing up one of their Double Sliced Layer Cake (Just gotta bind it). Great job!
Arlene C answered:
Thank you. Yes, I saw the YouTube video. I also want to try the Double Sliced Layer Cake.
K Lee 2Strings asked:
The disappearing 4-patch is perfect for your holiday fabrics! Lovely little Christmas projects that you'll enjoy for many years to come. Have a very merry Christmas!
Arlene C answered:
Thank you. You too have a very Merry Christmas.
Karena asked:
Soooo pretty. Love the table mat, too! I think I have the same fabric in a jelly roll. I must find a project for next Christmas. Great job, Arlene.
Arlene C answered:
Thank you. I think I used the Flurry charm pack. It's been sitting around here for a long time and I need to use some things in my stash because I seem to keep buying more and more. LOL Merry Christmas, Karena.
Pam NZ asked:
This is so sweet, as is the star... would that be the giant star off Missouri too? Love their videos and love your little quilts! Well done and in time to enjoy for Christmas too!
Arlene C answered:
Thank you, Pam. The star came from a pattern in a book. It was easy but I don't know how many times I had to take the triangles apart because I kept putting them together incorrectly. Sometimes I am just too impatient.
Meredith K asked:
This is so pretty & fresh! It looks like your quilting lines are wavy, did you use a special stitch? I love it, so whimsical!
Arlene C answered:
Thank you, Meredith. I just used a serpentine stitch on the sewing machine. I'm no very good at free-motion quilting on the sewing machine and find the serpentine stitch is a way to make stitches show.
