Q&A with KChristine

DaniLovesQuilts asked:
That's really beautiful! I've been following the class, but haven't made any of the blocks, because they strike me as "too hot". But this is gorgeous! Your color choices make it work on a different level- the cool fabrics recede and the warm ones pop forward. If you did a cool border, it might ground your quilt, where a warm border might make it seem like you're looking through a screen... Can't waiting see how you finish this. Wonderful!
KChristine answered:
I love the idea of a warm border making it seem like looking through a screen. I hadn't thought of that.
Essem Sween asked:
I don't normally like bright colours, but the way you've put these pieces together makes it look alive almost. This is really beautiful, I'd be thinking about a neutral or metallic binding to frame this, almost like a work of art.
KChristine answered:
I like your idea of a neutral binding, or maybe a dark red/black one, which would seem neutral in contrast with these bright colors.
mpac5000 asked:
This is really striking! Your choice of colors and fabrics has a great balance and flow. Wow! I can't wait to see the finished product.
KChristine answered:
I love the Storm at Sea pattern. It seems that the "flow" comes from the pattern, but the visibility of the flow comes from the contrast.
Nurse quilter asked:
Did u get the pattern on Craftsy?
KChristine answered:
no, it's a traditional Storm at Sea pattern. I made the pattern myself by looking at Storm at Sea quilts on line (google Storm at Sea quilt). most of these that you'll see are blue and white. I substituted "warm" and "cool" colors for blue and white, using as many of each that I had in my stash of batiks.
BJorgensen asked:
