Q&A with Deena

Lynette asked:
Very inventive! It would be a really neat gift for my daughter of her kids.
Deena answered:
Thanks! I really thought it was a great idea too.
999Graffix asked:
Gorgeous! It is sooooo much nicer than a traditional 'memory' quilt, which I often think of as morbid in a way. This is such a happier alternative, and so personal! Brilliant!
Deena answered:
thank you - I love to look at it too. I often go back to the pictures - to look up a date for anniversary or birthday..it helps!
jshanty asked:
I think this quilt is awsome. You did a fantastic job. Did you have a pattern, or just wing it.
Deena answered:
No, I did not have a pattern...I made it all myself - so I guess that is "winging" it...thanks

jseal2262430 asked:
I love this quilt! I have never quilted before but would like to keep the tradition alive in my family. My grandmothers quilted and well the next generation got lazy. I want to revive the tradition to pass down to my children. I would love to start with this pattern to give to both my mother and mother-in-law for christmas. I tried to get pattern from icon to no avail. Please help!
Deena answered:
no- sorry- there is no pattern - I made it up myself and I do not know how to mass produce it.
