nathaliebearden Things got so crazy last week that I ended up trading my middle child for a box of Belgian chocolate. My sweet friend @annelies_b kept the child, I took the chocolate. No doubt she will learn Dutch easily! Thank you friend for helping me out!!! 13h

nathaliebearden My copy of the beautifully put together #quiltcon magazine just came in the mail. Love how they featured my quilt Amazonia and also used it for the section opening graphics. #nathaliequilts #amazoniaquilt 2d

nathaliebearden Twenty dryers, just like these, and two dehumidifiers to save the walls. You can't see how bad the floors are, but they are done. The noise level is unreal!! I had to go outside to hear my thoughts. Guess what I was thinking...yes.....CALGON, TAKE ME AWAY!!!! 3d

Normal Nathalie Bearden
nathaliebearden So, we woke up Monday morning to the sound of water and a flooded first floor. All thanks to a cracked toilet tank in the powder room. ALL of my hardwood floors (along with door frames and baseboards, and and and) will have to be replaced. That is almost all of the first floor. Major construction. But, this post isn't about that, it is about the oldest girl. She will be a fish at the school music program tomorrow. How perfect! 5d

nathaliebearden On another note: How do you get young moms to take up quilting? Put together a quilt show that welcomes their work, babies, and strollers. Every time ladies walked past me and saw Florence at the show (in her stroller, playing on the floor, or nursing) they would comment on how happy they were to see babies, kids, and lots of men at this show. A modern quilt show expands well beyond the quilts themselves. @themqg hit all of the high marks. #nathaliequilts #quiltcon2015 #quiltcon 1w

nathaliebearden What a glorious experience. Thank you @themqg for putting a top notch show together. also thank you @spontaneousthreads and @entropyalwayswinsblog for honest conversations and laughter. I tried going back to Gordough's yesterday and ordering a salad, didn't work out. I had to capture this image because I loved watching people carefully inspect my quilts. Made it all worth it. #nathaliequilts #quiltcon #quiltcon2015 1w
