Q&A with hollycahull

QuiltDude asked:
What a BEAUTIFUL quilt.
hollycahull answered:
Thank you. It was a bit of a gamble - the blue background was completely random and unplanned. I wasn't quite sure how it was going to turn out.
4bird2 asked:
Stunning. I love the different sized stars and the mix of blues is so gorgeous. They are a lucky couple to snuggle under such a beautiful handmade gift.
hollycahull answered:
Thank you for your kind comments. Now I just need to figure out how to quilt it....found some lovely variegated threads in yellows and blues. Can't wait.
Peggy Martin asked:
What a great design for a bed quilt! I love how you combined the stars in multiple sizes, and the wide variety of scrappy blues makes the whole quilt shimmer - fantastic!
hollycahull answered:
Thanks! The class was an inspiration. I love how easy the paper piecing is, and it really wasn't difficult doing the smaller stars. I'd originally thought of trying a few 3" stars, but realized they would be too challenging. The spikey border was a great way to use up all the extra fabric. Thanks for the great class!
