Q&A with KerryAline

Diana Yost asked:
Beautiful!! I haven't attempted Bargello yet even though I have the class. You did a great job!!!
KerryAline answered:
Thank you for your kind words. You really should go for it. It's fun, and definitely not has hard as it might appear.
gingging asked:
Beautiful Bargello love your colors. I have the class to take but it looks hard but I really want to try. I'm glad to see you can use a Jelly Roll I have a couple I want to use. Thanks for sharing. Sue
KerryAline answered:
Thanks so much. Definitely go for it...it isn't as difficult as it look, and it is a lot of fun!
lew45shol8765509 asked:
Hi Karen! Yes it's me again! I have the same question about this project... Where can I buy the Island Batik jelly roll. I have a lot of Batik yardage (I love Batiks!) I'm sure i will have something in my stash that will work quite well if i can't get this particular fabric...
KerryAline answered:
Try googling it, or checking Amazon or Fabric.com.
lew45shol8765509 asked:
Hi KerryAline, WOW!!! Even your name is awesome!!! Your quilt is exquisite and I mean that from the bottom of my heart! Speaking of hearts, I saw what you did for your hearts. They are perfect. They certainly pop out at you! How long have you been quilting? This will actually be my first COMPLETED quilt after the Bargello Coins...Would you mind telling what weight thread you used for these quilts. All of my thread so far has been 50 weight but, Karen mentioned that we should use a lighter weight thread as well as shorter stitches. Thanks for the words of encouragement. You said it looks harder than it actually is. I liked hearing that because I am a real newbie but, I've always wanted to do Bargello- there's just something about it that I really love. By the way, my name is Priscilla. I don't know what my user name for this class.
KerryAline answered:
Hi Priscilla ~ Sorry for not answering sooner. I really don't recall the thread weight, sorry. Thank you for your kind words - just go for it! You'll learn something with each one, and get better as time goes along.
