Q&A with Janet Hiemstra

JMyers96 asked:
I like this - is this a variation of "strip quilting"?
Janet Hiemstra answered:
This isn't strip quilting. It's from the book "Super Simple Squares, Creative Uses for 6 1/2" Squares, by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith. I adapted the pattern for the size I wanted.
mneece asked:
Love the quilt and the baby! Thanks for sharing! Looks like he loves the quilt, too! What a wonderful heirloom....maybe you could scan the picture to printable fabric and attach it to the back of the quilt. There would never be any doubt years later as to who the quilt was made for...even better would be a picture of Riley, the quiltmaker and the quilt!
Janet Hiemstra answered:
That's a good idea to scan a photo of Riley, the quilt, and myself for the back of it.
