Q&A with MaryLou55

MaryLou55 asked:
Not finished yet...not sure where to go from here. I want to try some painting, but it is so hard for me to let go. I love the colors and the effect of the random shapes in the log cabin blocks. Don't want to ruin it!
MaryLou55 answered:
Thanks for the idea, I think I will make a border strip like that and put it on my design wall to digest it for a while.
aletha4 asked:
Wow that is so pretty I have to make something for my niece a can you tyell me how you did this???
MaryLou55 answered:
I bought the Art Quilt Backgrounds: Beyond Log Cabin class from I just followed the teacher's directions, used colors that I love and this is what I came up with.
Judith Trager asked:
Your quilt is gorgeous, Mary Lou. I love the way you isolated the gold--it is very evocative. Are you going further from here? Or is this one done and you want to move on to the next one now that you have the technique in hand?Let me know if I can be of help. Judith Trager
MaryLou55 answered:
Thank you, Judith. I want to go further with this, but I am not sure where to go.... I like it the way it is, but I want to explore some of the embellishment techniques from your class. Any suggestions you have would certainly be helpful!
