My BOM 2012


Last Wednesday, I had  the BOM class at Irene's shop, "La Volpe Rossa", with the teacher Nicoletta. There will be twelve meetings (may be) to complete the quilt.
The project was born in Amish style but, of course, we can choose the fabrics that we like or we have in our stash.

For this project I have chose theese fabrics that I already had: Japanese fabrics!




So, it will be...... JAPANESE HOUSES QUILT

Anna WON!!!

This is a special post......not from a quilter but from an happy mom!!!

My daughter Anna, seventeen years old, won a prestigious scholarship for one school year in USA!!!
She made, last November and December, a lot of tests, competitive examinations and selections for 
"AFSIntercultura Programs"


AFS is a no-profit international exchange organization for students. You can read the AFS history here in English and here in Italian.

Anna will leave the next August and  she will attend in USA the fouth year of high school ( we do not know yet the town and the hosting family). 
We are all very happy for this great experience that Anna will do......but....... how many tears of happiness and sadness in my mom's heart? 

Dear Anna we are very proud of you!

You have the future in your hands and the world is waiting for you!
