Q&A with Lynn Acheson

GramsStitches asked:
WOW! doesn't even begin to say how much I love your creation!!
Lynn Acheson answered:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely comment!
abanabana asked:
Love the kimono pattern and the bamboo quilting on the edges work so well!
Lynn Acheson answered:
As I only posted my photos last night, I was surprised and delighted to see two complimentary comments on Craftsy this evening. Thanks a lot.
Gog asked:
Your quilt is beautiful, love the fabrics, design and the bamboo quilting. What was it like to use bamboo wadding, what machine needle did you use? Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Lynn Acheson answered:
The bamboo wadding gave a nice soft, flexible finish to the quilt. I didn't use any special needle, just whatever was in my machine at the time. I'm not one for swapping needles. I just use a general one.
Carolyn asked:
Hi, Kimono Quilt is this a class or is this a pattern.
Lynn Acheson answered:
This was made from a pattern by Betty Blais if you are interested in getting hold of it.
CraftyGrammie47 asked:
This is soooo beautiful. Is this a paper pieced pattern. If so, are you able to share where you got it from ? I would very much like to get it. Great work!
Lynn Acheson answered:
This was my first large paper piecing project. It isn't too difficult as all the pieces are fairly big. The pattern is by Betty Blais. I bought it online. Give it a go.
