Legendary Quilters Interview!



Hi Y'all!

I'm back from Denver as of midnight....and guess what? One of my bags of quilts got left behind in Detroit! :c( But according to the Northwest Airlines agent, it should be here today.

I had a great time in Denver, and want to write more about it. I've got pictures to upload, even some little videos to upload...but it's going to take some time.

So to keep you entertained for a bit, here is an interview I did with Cinea Dallinger of Legendary Quilters. She called from Australia, and recorded our conversation. I had a great time sitting on the front porch swing with a glass of lemonade and talking about quilting, from one side of the world to the other.

I have uploaded it HERE. It's in WMA format and it should open up in your windows media program.

Thanks Cinea! It was great meeting you via the phone line!

Hi Bonnie,
I enjoyed listening to the interview very much. It was interesting to hear you talk about giving a quilt to others- and how when you quilt it that you give yourself to them. I have always felt that way and found the giving of a quilt a very emotional experience. I will be looking forward to seeing your book in print. Will you sell it through Amazon?
The web pictures are fun to look at too.
Regards from A Western Canadian Quilter,
Anna

Bonnie,
I just sat listening to your whole interview while hand quilting on the borders of my present quilt. I can not tell you how much I enjoyed this evening. I even turned the tv off. (grin) You are such a caring and loving lady. I feel like I know you even though we have never met. Good luck with your book. Winona
