I've been blessed to have been taking classes with Maggie since 2001.
Maggie Bonanomi has an iconic unique style that is so identifiable.
It is timeless and beautiful ~ reminiscent of antiques and inspired by nature.
For seventeen years her style has touched by heart and continues to do so.
Not many artists can accomplish that.
I am so happy that Maggie has a new book out!
"Pure & Simple" inspired by the Seasons is available May 1.
I was blessed to have early access to her book and I can tell you that it is marvelous!
A full year of seasonal projects and then some. I think that each and every project is a "must do".
Mom and I have completed a few of the projects from her book.
It's fun to see that even when we do the same project with most of the same materials, they still come out slightly different and unique.
This is one of my favorite projects from the book.
Mom has finished hers.
It is so beautiful in person, I think I need to be sure to finish mine for this autumn.
This is another sweet project from the book - perfect for Christmas and all winter long.
This is Mom's version.
And this is mine.
I think that Maggie's style is so timeless that it works with all home styles - from primitive to traditional to modern.
Mom finished this project as well.
Maggie encourages you to take the elements and arrange them in a way that is pleasing to you.
Mine is all prepared, but not yet stitched.
Mom and I both find that Maggie's patterns are the most relaxing to work on. Once prepped, Maggie's technique of whip stitching allows you to relax and enjoy.
I have already picked the next project that I want to make in her book:
Isn't this perfect for May Day!
You can pre-order Maggie's new book "Pure & Simple" here.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
