Q&A with bitterpurl

gfcupcake asked:
I love the backing. The machine quilting suits the quilt. Love the updates.
bitterpurl answered:
thank you! it took me forever to figure out how I wanted to quilt it
hobbit asked:
I too can't decide.........front or back . I love them both !
bitterpurl answered:
thank you! I love both sides as well
mimis quilts asked:
this looks so modern now. did you use dye to darken the white or did you actually redo the blocks? just shows how an old fashioned style can be modernised. My kids would like this.
bitterpurl answered:
thank you! I redid the quilt with my own fabrics. you can see the inspiration quilt here and with my version here
Treelotta asked:
I think I almost like the back more than the front! I love both sides. :)
bitterpurl answered:
I know what you mean! it's like two quilts in one!
