Q&A with Darns

gmhnQuilts asked:
these are gorgeous!
Darns answered:
Thank you! Lots of fun (except for the English Paper Piecing - not good at handsewing!)
Pam NZ asked:
What fun you're having Darns! LOVE the hexie block... the FMQ is very effective.... did you have to measure and draw the faux hexies? Go you!
Darns answered:
Hi, Pam! As it turned out, I had a paper hexie template so I just lined it up with the pieced ones & drew lines on the background.
Polarjo asked:
Simply stunning. You are always such an inspiration to me.
Darns answered:
Thanks so much, Polarjo! There is so much inspiration on Craftsy that I have way too many projects going on.
Barbara Hughes asked:
perfect fabric for these patterns. Great work!
Darns answered:
Thank you, Barbara! My Diamond Carat was not as good as the BOM block - it's supposed to look like a faceted diamond - too much thinking about where to use the fabrics, so I gave up & went with a more symmetrical arrangement.
innerwave asked:
Just such a great combination of colors - thank you for sharing!
Darns answered:
Thanks so much! These colors are about as wild & crazy as I get!
