A Bountiful Life Does Quilt Market 2012

Here is A Bountiful Life in the Kansas City Star booth, kissin' cousins with Dawn Heese's quilts from her book, Cozy Comforts.  
Oh, Bountiful looks beautiful on display.  I just wish I could be there.  I know I will hear soon how Bountiful's Schoolhouse went with Donna, Mary Ellen, and Muriel.  I hope you are inspired to get a copy of A Bountiful Life.  The individual motifs are unique to the original maker and so entrancing, the perfect applique designs.  An overflowingly optimistic expression of that expansionist and upbeat phase of our American history.  


My attention was caught by Dawn's progress on her applique Sassy quilt on her blog, the one that is now finished and folded-up right next to Bountiful and now I'm even more interested in getting Cozy Comforts and making that quilt.  It's the perfect design!


Do attend the free exhibit (open to the public) Kansas City Star Quilts Exhibit at the KC Star Press Pavilion showcasing its author quilts: quilts by and from the collections of the Blackbird Ladies, Edie McGinnis, Barbara Brackman, Maggie Bonanomi, my editor Donna di Natale...and five quilts by me!    I'm thinking of you, my little quilts, in such exalted company; behave yourselves and look stylish and artistic :-) so you will get asked back (well so I will get asked back lol)!

I know you don't like missing out on the fun. I hope you are getting close to the end of your treatments. The quilt looks oh so good in the booth.

I love the way you lecture your little quilts to stand up straight and look sharp! I know they did!
