Bonnie McCaffery Fans-The Blue Moon is Rising!

I thought I’d let you in on a very cool event, especially if you love Bonnie McCaffery &  really who doesn’t? She emailed to say that she is offering a large group of her beautiful quilts up for bidding on EBay. She had a previous sale last week and many of those bidding were not quilters,  so didn’t realize what a great opportunity this was. Unbelievable as it is, many were purchased for some unheard of prices, a few even $50. or $60 dollars.

As everyone  knows [ but I’ll explain it anyway] on Ebay the final  amount paid is determined by bidding & with any auction there can be unexpected outcomes. If you happen to be at the right place at the right time, you might just acquire something of value for a bargain price. It could happen, well maybe once in a blue moon.  

Well, apparently the blue moon is still on the rise, because Bonnie is  determined  to make  more room. She is doing it again, starting this Monday through Sunday. This is an

opportunity to own a beautiful  Bonnie McCaffery quilt, which most of us probably could never afford. Given her being so well known a celebrity in the quilting world,  a  fabulous quilter & author, with her own show, the value of these will be sure to rise. 

So if that blue moon stays up there,  from the upcoming Monday to Sunday, get on over to EBay. You  just might be able to afford to bid and win a Bonnie McCaffery quilt.

 [I’m shamelessly thinking of the bragging rights at your next guild meeting or quilt class,  as you nonchalantly mention, ” I do love my new Bonnie McCaffery quilt. You should see her tiny stitches on her applique, quite remarkable” as you casually let fall out of your bag one of her CD’s.  I know you would never think of doing that, as you’re too fine a person to brag like that]

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s always played a role in my life, in one form or another. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting.I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild, at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
