Q&A with Ann Petersen

Polarjo asked:
Beautiful! I'm really looking forward to tackling this pattern....but I think I'll work my way up to it with some of the relatively more simple patterns in the class first. :-)
Ann Petersen answered:
Sounds like a good plan!
Julieannabell asked:
Ann, your quilt is stunning,but I have a query? Why do some of the quarter square triangles colour fade out? I think it makes the quilt lose something or even look unbalanced! Is their a reason for this. Julieannabell
Ann Petersen answered:
I actually like unbalanced, I guess! I really like color to variegate across the surface of a quilt - one of the things you tend to find in nearly all of my quilts. It does get very pale here, I admit and you easily could do the grading from more of a medium to dark instead of the super light to dark.
