    An unexpected gift

    My DD works for Oxford University and one of her co-workers is the sister of Maggie Ball, when this person found out that I quilted she sent me the book, signed, Bargello Quilts with a Twist - I was so delighted it is a lovely book and am now plotting which one to make. Just shows how lovely people can be.

    That is just so nice! Quilters are a generous breed, are't they?

    I finished a "Bargello with a Twist " last week. I had to contact Maggie Ball last year. I saw the TV program --Sewing with Nancy when M Ball was on showing her book. Ordered it with the DVD. Problem was my favorite in the world
    fabric was the one in the book. After a yr of searching --even Nancy's scraps --I contacted MBall. She sent a scrap. I
    wore the srap pinnedon me wherever I went then spent hours on line asking about it. Finally found name, company and bought all I found. Have almost 4 yds sitting but I will not cut until I am very sure what I want to make. So far I made a watch band with the fabric. If I could send pics I would of this quilt but I will need hrs to figure out how.
    Like the multi in this quilt for the focus fabric also.
    Thankful for that scrap from MBall.
