Q&A with annethel

Gail Kessler asked:
You did a great job with your first quilt!! Keep sewing!
annethel answered:
Thanks Gail! Your course really helped. The next quilt I'm sewing is based on your "Notting Hill" quilt. I think it's a great design. I'm sure I'll be watching your videos again. :)
JollyQuilter000 asked:
Wow! That is a great first quilt! Love how your red binding really pops! Hope you do many more quilts!
annethel answered:
Thank you! I liked how the red binding pops as well. I was nervous about it being "too bright." But I think it works really well - I'm happy I didn't go with a grey binding.
Meredith K asked:
This is great! Congrats on a beautiful 1st quilt! The colors are wonderful! As is the quilting! Since it's your 1st quilt, not sure if you know about "spray baste" ? It's a time & lower back saver! :) (in case you want to try it on quilt #2) :)
annethel answered:
Yes, I've heard of spray basting. I might give it a go next time. It makes me a little bit nervous. I'm afraid I won't have time to smooth the fabric out as it dries and that the layers might shift as I quilt. But my knees would love the break!

Very Pretty quilt! I hope my first quilt turns out half as beautiful as yours did! Great Job!
annethel answered:
Oh, I'm sure they will! Just pick out colors that you like :)

Love this quilt! And love the pic of you sewing! Love the colors,
annethel answered:
Thanks! I made my husband take that photo. I told him, "I have to have pictures of me sewing while I'm young so I can show our future children!"
