One year at our local state fair I saw Georgia Bonesteel selling her first quilt book and of course I had to buy one. This was before she became famous and yes, I still have book. Georgia had a purse design in her book and I made one and took it to work and everyone wanted me to make them one. I started making these and sold purses for about a year.

One of my sister-in-law’s made beautiful quilts and wanted to teach me to make them. This was before the rotary cutter, we had to cut everything with scissors. What a job!

I made three baby quilts and that was it for me.

Then about a year later I went with her to a quilt shop and the owner showed her a new tool called a Rotary Cutter. My sister-in-law bought one and later that day she called me to come over to her house and try this new tool out.

I drove to her house and as soon as I cut fabric with this new tool I immediately drove back to the quilt shop and bought myself a Rotary Cutter.

I have been making quilts ever since.

Well, since Betty bought that first rotary cutter – she has been turning out some GORGEOUS quilts! My goodness, take a look at this woman’s blog! She also has pictures of a 9-Patch flower quilt that is totally hand sewn (no sewing machine) and quilted – just to see how our great grandmothers did it! Awesome!

And in her Artfire shop, she not only has quilts, but pillows, lavender sachets, and ACEO’s.

WHAT ON EARTH IS AN ACEO?
———————————————————————————————-
A – art
C – card
E – editions
O – originals
It’s a collectible, affordable piece of art that measures exactly 2.5 x 3.5 inches (like a hockey card)

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH IT?
———————————————————————————————-
1. frame it and stick it on your favorite wall
2. trade it with your other cool friends
3. prop it up in a little tiny easel
4. use it as a bookmark, so that you can admire it every time you drift off while reading…
5. hide it away in a box until I get really famous
6. once I’m famous, haul it out and sell it on eBay

And Betty has some AWESOME cards – WOW!

See you tomorrow!
