Q&A with Richard Healey

calicosnowman asked:
This is a nice quilt, never thought of doing one like this. It's inviting... Did you have lots of scraps? If not, what a way to use them up. Great idea. I bet this worked up fairly quickly too? Thanks for letting us see this. Maybe it will give others ideas.. it did me..
Richard Healey answered:
None of these original blocks were made from scraps. I made a number of granny square blocks and the colored blocks together. I would buy 10-20 fat quarters of a single color and then start making blocks. I am a huge fan of the 2 1/2 inch square blocks. I now cut them of scraps and set them aside waiting for my next project. This was one of my first done this way but the attached pattern is a orange and gray quilt I did the same way. And I soon will complete a purple and gray version of it.
