News from Bonnie

"I just wanted to tell everyone that I am now about to start stitching down the small pieces of fabric on the 96 squares that I took for the cathedral window quilt. I have " 24"patches that are 4 sewn together, That makes for... 245... pieces of fabric , for the windows on these squares. I have them all pinned on, now just need to start sewing . wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeew. I was beginning to wonder if I was going to get it done, BUT I did not work on it steady like I should have. I am anxious for everyone to get back so I will have some place to go ...ha-ha... "

Bonnie, it was good to see you using the blog. I also miss everyone I miss the one day we all get together. I have finished quilting my Grandmothers Flower Garden and now I am working on a whole cloth. I am doing some applique on it and then I will hand quilt the entire thing. Hope to have it done for the show. We still do not know if we are coming back to Quartzsite for the winter. Our moms are fading fast and we want to spend as much time with them as we can. However living in an RV in New England for the winter does not sound so good to me. I guess we will wait until the last minute to decide. Miss you and all my quilting friends, Janet

Hey, Janet... with a T ...ha-ha
It is good to hear from you. Sounds like you have busy, as usual
I am going to make a quilt like you said " whole cloth " BUT did not know what to call it ...ha-ha So I learned something today. Mine will have a " 5' state of Texas in the center with blue bonnets all around the edge of quilt, that is for starters, All will be embroidered.. I don't think that is spelled right, BUT you get the idea ...ha-ha..I understand that you want to spend time with the " mothers" BUT I sure will miss you if you don't come take care... Bonnie
