Maggie Bonanomi and a bunch of "Muguet"

In France, on May 1st, people buy a bunch of lily of the valleys ("muguet" in French) to bring home. So to celebrate May 1st, here's a small bouquet.


I also wanted to share with you the two folk art books I particularly like. I've had them for quite a long time. They are a real source of inspiration for me. The two books are from Maggie Bonanomi. As far as I know, there is another one that should be ready very soon!!!





The two project photos are from the books!

This is where I found the inspiration for the sentence "Gather up all the fragments so that nothing is lost" that I wrote on the banner of my Mystery Quilt block 1.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Until later,

  2. Bonjour David,
    J'ai ces 2 livres et j'adore.
    Je t'envoie ainsi qu'à ton épouse et tes filles de beaux brins "italiens" de muguet.
