Recently, Jim and I went to an estate sale and I heard a familiar voice...Bonnie! She was one of my card and gift reps from my years in retail. I haven't seen her for years and had lost track of her. She was helping the gal who was running the sale. Bonnie went through some hard times about a year ago with cancer, but she's doing well and looked good. I was so thrilled to see her.
The last time I talked to her, she was really interested in learning how to quilt. She told me she was quilting and was working on a quilt called Cinco de Mayo. She ran out to the car to get her blocks to show me. Now remember, she has only been quilting about a year! I was so impressed!
These are paper pieces and just so bright and fun! She was so excited to share her quilting with me. This is way out of my comfort zone, but it was just so interesting, I decided to track down the book.
I checked on Amazon and found it.....and ordered it. I want to try something really different.
I'm going to try to make mine in the pink and purple shades...we'll see. I may have to call Bonnie for help! She has a very good sense of color and is very artistic. I'm excited to try something new.
Thanks Bonnie for sharing your great quilt blocks.
