Georgia Bonesteel @ Quilfest Greenville

Georgia Bonesteel is probably best known for her PBS series, Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel. In my book, this quilty icon is up there with Eleanor Burns, Marianne Fons & Liz Porter. I really wasn’t planning to go to Greenville again this year, but the opportunity to see Mrs. Bonesteel in person was a real draw. Hubs encouraged me to take advantage of the opportunity to see her now, rather than wait until later. I might not get another chance. Very true.

Sew glad I went. Yes, traffic was a beast both ways, but the opportunity to hear Georgia Bonesteel speak about her process and see her trunk show was well worth it. Unexpected bonus: a very nice conversation with one of the instructors (Sara Bond) over lunch. I sat at a random table to eat and struck up a conversation with her. She said I really needed to plan on getting out to Sisters quilt show in Oregon at least once. It’s on the list, along with Road to California and the Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, WA…and Paducah….and Houston. 🙂
