Q&A with Crystalsmom

Surfside6 asked:
This is your first quilt? WOW - looks great. Wonderful job (and quick)
Crystalsmom answered:
What is really funny is that I am teaching my husband's ex-wife the same pattern. I was so very excited about how easy it went together that she is going to try it in all patriotic fabrics since she is born 7-3. I am a neatnick also. I studied a lot of great teachers for a long time and Craftsy has some of the best. I learn something from each of them.
Tanya W. asked:
Very nice quilt, and for your first? Wow, great job, can't wait to see what you do next!
Crystalsmom answered:
It was a lot of fun doing this quilt. The quilt tops are a piece of cake when you keep everything pressed and precise. The machine quilting is another story. I saw a great tutorial about rolling your quilt top on a trim board as well as the backing and batting on another. I tried it with a small one I am working on but with PVC pipe. It worked out great as you pin or baste your quilt sandwich. I waited my whole working life of 45 years for this moment in time.

WOW, I am so impressed with your quilt. It is gorgeous!
Crystalsmom answered:
It is so great to have time to create after working for 45 years. I am glad you like my work. They have great teachers here and You Tube and I study until I've got it and I am a neatnick.
NanaJeanFL asked:

Crystalsmom answered:
Thank You so much. I am working on a quilt for the back in bgetween doing alot of machine embroidery. Just purchased the class on Stupebdous Stitching so we will see what that brings to my quilt tops.
