Q&A with Ann Petersen

Becky Botello asked:
absolutely beautiful
Ann Petersen answered:
Thank your much
JanaJ asked:
This is beautiful. The craftsmanship and design are perfect. I love the border. Thanks for adding the detail of the border. I love the contours in the outside edge of the border, especially since you didn't do them all the way around. The thin yellow strip around the binding really sets it off. Did you sew a folded strip of yellow to the binding and put them on together? I'd love to try something like that.
Ann Petersen answered:
The thin yellow strip is piping. I use Susan Cleveland's Piping Hot Binding technique. Excellent instructions and not really hard either! Thanks for all the lovely compliments!
Wiseass asked:
I've never seen such a beautiful border like this! I've never made a boder even half as pretty as yours. I'm pea green! Is it hard?
Ann Petersen answered:
I would say this is a fairly difficult border. This quilt has won some top awards and you don't get those by doing easy techniques. But it is all just one step at a time. The edge has piping and some fairly deep scallops, the quilted circles are my own designs, but they are based on feathers and pebbles, just done very small. Thank you so much for your kind words.
