Bronwyn, the Bag Lady

We called in to visit caravan friends who were camping alongside the Opotiki estuary.  “You must meet our friend Bronwyn”, Andrew said, “she is a quilter too”.  So Bronwyn and I got together and enjoyed a little quilty talk together and some show and tell.  Bronwyn is a self professed bag lady, she told me, as she brought out a wonderful black and white bag to show me.

Bronwyn and her husband have a motor-home and has two quilts covering the squabs. This pattern is particularly suitable for those who buy jelly rolls, as it is all made from 2.5in strips.  More strips used on the other quilt in tones of soft blues and pink,  and  I particularly liked the hand appliquéd  vines and leaves.

It is always so nice to meet up with a fellow quilter.  We talked about our respective quilt groups, UFOs, and quilt shops too.  Great to meet you, Bronwyn, and thanks so much for sharing your lovely work with me.

Super bag, and I do like the jelly roll quit design.

Like you, I love the appliqued leaves. Quilters are everywhere, it seems!
