Q&A with Griffin Helps

Surfside6 asked:
So interesting. Colors are great. Really a lot for the owner to look at and admire. Like it very much
Griffin Helps answered:
Thanks Surfside! It was fun and challenging to make.
Surfside6 asked:
FYI - the more I look at it, the more I love it. Would love to see closeups of some of the blocks and/or the back. The orange in the blocks really is adorable. Were fabrics from your stash (lucky you) or picked out specifically?
Griffin Helps answered:
Thanks for your comments Surfside. This quilt really taught me a lot. It was only the third quilt I had made, I think, and I was trying to use a lot of orange because that was the colour the mom wanted for her baby's nursery. The fabrics were from my stash. I struggled a lot with the star blocks, trying to get the points right, and didn't always succeed. Also, I wanted scrappy centres but didn't know what I was doing so did end up with a lot of ripping out and some bumps. But - I learned! I'll post a few other pics of the finished quilt. You'll notice I moved the stars to the back, partly to semi-hide them but also because the quilt was so big for a baby, I decided to make it smaller.
