Q&A with RosemarieW

patz in suffolk asked:
That's gorgeous! I love the variegated thread in the quilting which links in with the colours in the centrepiece. I also like the way the colours follow each other in threes, giving a sort of "curving" effect. The whole item looks very difficult. I've never tried paper piecing, and don't know anything about it ... yet ...! Oh - my husband just came and looked over my shoulder and was very complimentary about it too!
RosemarieW answered:
Do not worry ... you can do paper piecing. This is an excellent pattern. Take Peggy Martin's class, and you will be fine! And have fun to boot!
Caraline2 asked:
love it, it looks difficult im sure i have a pattern here, might give it a go one day, love the quilting too
RosemarieW answered:
It is not so difficult - just takes a little patience to be precise. Do not look too closely at mine! :)
hislambs@csolve.net asked:
Hi Rosemarie, Love your variation too! Lovely. I have this pattern, but it doesn't say how much yardage I need for the colors in the Star. Can you give me a ball park idea of what it might take to do just the star? Thanks. I am a Crafty member too and can be reached at hislambs@hislambsonline.org
RosemarieW answered:
Hi there. Thank you for your kind comment. This is a 20" x 20" cushion. And I just used scraps from my stash, so don't know the yardage I consumed. But it was very small pieces. Good luck with yours and enjoy the process!
