Q&A with Lesley Wood

Skey asked:
It's still a good idea though! Run with it! Remember that many mistakes end up becoming some of best work. :D

Surfside6 asked:
They are not mistakes - they are learning experiences. Love the block and it could go right into your BOM when you are ready.

blessosu asked:
I have a few "inspiration" blocks from the BOM also. Haven't tried anything yet, just thought I would wait until the end and see what I have!! LOL Aren't we having fun? You did a good job with them.
Lesley Wood answered:
This is my first ever quilt and I have no idea what its going to be like putting on the back. I only have a normal sewing machine so I am hoping it will be big enough in December! lol I am having a great time with it, just hope my blue and brown hold out so that there is some in every block as I have had it a long time and I'm not sure if I could get anymore.
patz in suffolk asked:
Clever of you to rescue your block like that - it's surprising how what we think are mistakes can turn quite easily into something worthwhile! Don't worry about quilting on a small machine - I assure you it's very possible. I quilted a large, double-sided quilt on a tiny Frister & Rossmann Cub 4 without any trouble when I first started quilting.
Lesley Wood answered:
thanks for the great info and support. I signed up to the craftsy class, big quilts,small machines but still haven't had the courage and make the excuse I haven't got time yet. Hopefully I will get them done before xmas
