Sad news

I just heard that Bonnie Leman has passed away. For those of you who don't recognize the name, she was the founder of Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. For those who do know her, a booklet is being compiled by Xenia Cord. To contribute a message to the family email it to with Bonnie Leman in the message line.

For over 30 years, Quilter's Newsletter has been my bible and favorite quilt magazine.

To learn more about Bonnie you can find a biography of her at the Quilter's Hall of Fame and an interview with her at the Alliance for American Quilts.


  1. sad news indeed. Personally I never found QNM quite the same after she left.

  2. I'm glad you posted this, Beth --- I had read it on another blog. I, too, agree that the magazine was never quite the same --- lost that "homey" feel.
