Q&A with Darlenedino

Dar.... asked:
Hi Jana, You did an AWESOME job on this 'Snow Blosson' block. Have you ever done something like this before? You will become a GREAT quilter in the future. You should be sooooo proud of your beautiful work. Thanks for sharing it with all of us. Happy Quilting, Darlene....
Darlenedino answered:
Thank you, and my grandma's name is Darlene too.
Ladycamper asked:
Beautiful work Jana! the colors are pretty. So glad to see you are doing so well after your big surgery
Darlenedino answered:
Thank you. I am doing great.
Ladycamper asked:
What is the Sugar Block Club?
Darlenedino answered:
it is a BOM being done by Amy Gibson @ Stitchery Dickery Dock. Amy did the Crafsty BOM for 2012. This is just one block a month and a recipe. It is 7.95 for the year. So far I think it won't be too complicated.
Kirasma asked:
VERY nice job. My grandaughter (8 years old) loves to watch me sew my quilt blocks. I got her a little sewing machine for Christmas and she is chomping at the bit to begin making her blocks. Will be a while before she gets as good as this though.
Darlenedino answered:
That is wonderful. That is about when Jana started. I started her with a little singer. However it was difficult to control the speed. A co-worker got a new machine and sold me her old one so now she has a machine with speed control and she has a 1/4 " foot. We started by just sewing strips together. She made doll quilts. And she did the Craftsy 2012 BLOCK OF THE MONTH. I am sure you will have a great time with your granddaughter. I can't wait to see what she does.
